Overview

This edition provides a text, translation and commentary on seventeen of Seneca's letters to Lucilius, which have always been amongst Seneca's most popular works. This volume contains letters 7, 12, 24, 47, 54, 56, 57, 78, 79, 83, 88, 90, 92, 104, 110, 114 and 122. The selection aims to cover a representative range of his letters, both in length and subject matter, and offers complete unabridged letters. The commentary focuses primarily on subject matter, rather than linguistic and lexical matters, though these are dealt with where they affect interpretation. Latin text with facing translation, commentary and notes. (Aris and Phillips 1988)
