Overview

Seneca: Suasoriae

This work contains a copy of Seneca's "Suasoriae", along with facing translation, full annotation and a useful introductory essay which offers an argument against suggestions that Seneca was no more than a professional hack teacher of rhetoric and that his Latinity is inferior and unclassical.
