This superb volume offers the finest translation of Seneca s dialogues and essays in print capturing the full range of his philosophical interests Here the Stoic philosopher outlines his thoughts on how to live in a troubled world Tutor to the young emperor Nero Seneca wrote exercises in practical philosophy that draw upon contemporary Roman life and illuminate the intellectual concerns of the day They also have much to say to the modern reader as Seneca ranges widely across subjects such as the shortness of life tranquility of mind anger mercy happiness and grief at the loss of a loved one Seneca s accessible aphoristic style makes his writing especially attractive as an introduction to Stoic philosophy and belies its reputation for austerity and dogmatism br br This edition combines a clear and modern translation by John Davies with Tobias Reinhardt s fascinating introduction to Seneca s career literary style and influence including a superb summary of Stoic philosophy and Seneca s interpretation of it The book s notes are the fullest of any comparable edition, Una condizione di beatitudine cos profonda che non si pu nemmeno esprimere a parole che si pu solo sperimentare un attimo che racchiude l eterno e l infinito br la felicit il tema del i De vita beata i un mirabile vademecum del pensiero di Seneca In questo dialogo dedicato al fratello Anneo Novato il filosofo latino mostra che solo il saggio pu raggiungerla Distaccandosi dalle passioni terrene egli diventa imperturbabile al punto da non temere neanche la morte Certo una strada difficile e piena di ostacoli ma non impraticabile Perch non nel piacere che meschino servile debole e caduco ma nella virt risiede la sola vera felicit, The power and wealth which Seneca the Younger c B C A D acquired as Nero s minister were in conflict with his Stoic beliefs Nevertheless he was the outstanding figure of his age The Stoic philosophy which Seneca professed in his writings later supported by Marcus Aurelius provided Rome with a passable bridge to Christianity Seneca s major contribution to Stoicism was to spiritualize and humanize a system which could appear cold and unrealistic br p Selected from the i Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium i these letters illustrate the upright ideals admired by the Stoics and extol the good way of life as seen from their standpoint They also reveal how far in advance of his time were many of Seneca s ideas his disgust at the shows in the arena or his criticism of the harsh treatment of slaves Philosophical in tone and written in the pointed style of the Latin Silver Age these essays in disguise were clearly aimed by Seneca at posterity p, Ahl s translations of three Senecan tragedies will gratify and challenge readers and performers With stage performance specifically in mind Ah renders Seneca s dramatic force in a modern idiom and style that move easily between formality and colloquialism as the text demands and he strives to reproduce the richness of the original Latin to retain the poetic form images wordplays enigmas paradoxes and dark humor of Seneca s tragedies br br Here is a moving and accomplished translation of this complex play dealing the the violent passions stirred by innocence and beauty and the terrible power of ideology hatred and misunderstanding
