Summary

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BCE65 CE) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, dramatist, statesman, and adviser to the emperor Nero, all during the Silver Age of Latin literature. The Complete Works of Lucius Annaeus Seneca is a fresh and compelling series of new English-language translations of his works in eight accessible volumes. Edited by world-renowned classicists Elizabeth Asmis, Shadi Bartsch, and Martha C. Nussbaum, this engaging collection restores Senecawhose works have been highly praised by modern authors from Desiderius Erasmus to Ralph Waldo Emersonto his rightful place among the classical writers most widely studied in the humanities. Anger, Mercy, Revengecomprises three key writings: the moral essays On Angerand On Clemencywhich were penned as advice for the then young emperor, Neroand the Apocolocyntosis, a brilliant satire lampooning the end of the reign of Claudius. Friend and tutor, as well as philosopher, Seneca welcomed the age of Nero in tones alternately serious, poetic, and comicmaking Anger, Mercy, Revengea work just as complicated, astute, and ambitious as its author.
