      Miriam Griffin says in her standard modern biography of Seneca that "the evidence for Seneca's life before his exile in 41 is so slight, and the potential interest of these years, for social history as well as for biography, is so great that few writers on Seneca have resisted the temptation to eke out knowledge with imagination." It is thus necessary to regard what one reads as alleged fact with extreme skepticism. Griffin infers from ancient sources that Seneca was born in either 8, 4, or 1 BC. She thinks he was born between 4 and 1 BC

      1. Life and Works
      Seneca's philosophical writings have often been interpreted with an eye to his biography: how could his discussions of the healing powers of philosophy not reflect his own life? However, as personal as Seneca's style often is, his writings are not autobiographical (Edwards 1997). Seneca creates a literary persona for himself. He discusses the questions that occupy him in a way that invites his readers to think about issues in their own life, rather than in Seneca's life. The writings that we shall primarily be concerned with are: the Moral Letters to Lucilius Ad Lucilium epistulae morales ), the Moral Essays dialogi Codex Ambrosianus Essays are two further works that came down to us in other manuscripts), and the Natural Questions Naturales quaestiones A brief note is in order here on the relative chronology of Seneca's works, which is hard to establish given that we know so little about Seneca's life.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Unterstützung. Beschreibung von A philosophy that saw self-possession as the key to an existence lived 'in accordance with nature', Stoicism called for the restraint of animal instincts and the severing of emotional ties. These beliefs were formulated by the Athenian followers of Zeno in the fourth century BC, but it was in Seneca (c. 4 BC - AD 65) that the Stoics found their most eloquent advocate. Stoicism, as expressed in the Letters, helped ease pagan Rome's transition to Christianity, for it upholds upright ethical ideals and extols virtuous living, as well as expressing disgust for the harsh treatment of slaves and the inhumane slaughters witnessed in the Roman arenas. Seneca's major contribution to a seemingly unsympathetic creed was to transform it into a powerfully moving and inspiring declaration of the dignity of the individual mind.

    Ancient bust of Seneca, part of a double herm (Antikensammlung Berlin) Called the younger . Roman philosopher, statesman and dramatist, tutor and adviser to Nero. He was implicated in a plot to murder Nero and committed suicide. His works include Stocial essays on ethical subjects and tragedies that had a considerable influence on Elizabethan drama. Extracts from Epistolas:
    from The Extended Circle by Jon Wynne-Tyson. Direct link: How long shall we weary heaven with petitions for superfluous luxuries, as though we had not at hand wherewithal to feed ourselves? How long shall we fill our plains with huge cities? How long shall the people slave for us unnecessarily? How long shall countless numbers of ships from every sea bring us provisions for the consumption of a single mouth? An ox is satisfied with the pasture of an acre or two; one wood suffices for several elephants. Man alone supports himself by the pillage of the whole earth and sea. What! Has Nature indeed given us so insatiable a stomach, while she has given us such insignificant bodies? No, it is not the hunger of our stomachs, but insatiable covetousness which costs so much - Epistola, 1x

    11. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC - 65 AD)
    Biography of Roman playwright Lucius Annaeus Seneca, plus links to all of his works currently in print.
    Lucius Annaeus Seneca Born in Spain in 4 BC, Lucius Annaeus Seneca was educated in Rome and became famous not only as a playwright, but as an orator and philosopher as well. He served as tutor to the young Nero, and when the boy became Emperor in 54 AD, he retained Seneca as his advisor. For several years, Seneca exerted a calming influence on the young emperor. After he retired in AD 62, however, he lost favor with his former pupil, and in AD 65, he was accused of conspiring against Nero and was forced to commit suicide. Of the plays Seneca left behind, at least 8 have survived including The Trojan Women, Oedipus, Medea, The Mad Hercules, The Phoenician Women, Phaedra, Agamemnon and Thyestes . Two more plays, Octavia and Hercules on Oeta have sometimes been attributed to Seneca although many scholars doubt their authenticity. Hercules on Oeta is generally considered to be an unremarkable imitation of Senecan tragedy, and Octavia appears to have been written after Nero's death, thus discounting Seneca as the author.

    Home Ancient Theatre Medieval Theatre 16th Century ... Email Us LUCIUS ANNAEUS SENECA (3 B.C.-65 A.D.) T HE eight tragedies and one praetexta Among Greek writers, Euripides attracted Seneca most. His Agamemnon is an imitation of Aeschylus , his Oedipus after Sophocles ; all the other plays are after Euripides. In most cases he retained the Greek names and plot, making slight changes in the arrangement of scenes, or shifting the action in order to bring a different character into prominence. Here and there a new personage is introduced; yet the Latin plays are generally shorter than the Greek originals. The chorus was retained, though there was no dancing place in a Roman theater. The lyrics given to the chorus by Seneca do not advance the plot or intensify the action; they merely serve for rhetorical display and seem therefore doubly redundant and artificial. The Medea , the Mad Hercules , and The Trojan Women are among the best of his plays. In the first two, the action is practically identical with the Greek prototypes.

    The Life of Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 B.C. - A.D. 65)
    Seneca was an important Latin writer for the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and beyond. His themes and philosophy should even appeal to us today, or so says Brian Arkins in " Heavy Seneca: his Influence on Shakespeare's Tragedies Classics Ireland 2 (1995) 1-8. ISSN 0791-9417. Seneca the Elder was a rhetorician from Cordoba, Spain, where his son, our thinker, Lucius Annaeus Seneca, was born in about 4 B.C. His aunt or someone took the young boy to be educated in Rome where he studied a philosophy that blended Stoicism with neo-Pythagoreanism. Seneca began his career in law and politics in about A.D. 31, serving as consul in 57. He soon fell afoul of the first of 3 emperors, Caligula. He survived long enough to serve as advisor of the last of the Julio-Claudians from 54-62 A.D. whom he had earlier served as tutor.

    There is no grace in a benefit that sticks to the fingers.

    There is no great genius free from some tincture of madness.
    There is none made so great but he may both need the help and service, and stand in fear of the power and unkindness, even of the meanest of mortals. Dependence There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage. Courage There is nothing more disgraceful than that an old man should have nothing to produce as a proof that he has lived long except his years. Age There is nothing that we can properly call our own but our time, and yet everybody fools us out of it who has a mind to do it. If a man borrows a paltry sum of money, there must needs be bonds and securities, and every common civility is presently charged upon account. But he who has my time thinks he owes me nothing for it, though it be a debt that gratitude itself can never repay. Time They who have light in themselves will not revolve as satellites.
