"This edition of Seneca's tragedies is fresh, affordable, and teachable, and I hope it will make Senecan tragedy more accessible for those wanting to teach it in courses on Latin literature, drama, or myth. Wilson has discovered a proper idiom for Seneca's tragedies, one that not only is suitable for the grandeur of his rhetorical catalogues, but can also deliver his sententiae with the cunning and thrust they deserve."-Bryn Mawr Classical Review
