9780140446678: Seneca in English (Poets in Translation, Penguin)

Envied by Caligula, exiled by Claudius and finally executed by his pupil Nero, the playwright and philosopher Seneca the Younger (c. 4BC-65BC) wrote in a violent, epigrammatic and extreme style which has often seemed excessive to those living in calmer times. Yet he was extremely influential upon writers and poets ranging from Shakespeare and Marvell to T.S. Eliot and Ted Hughes. This is an anthology of verse versions of Seneca from the Middle Ages to the Present Day, with a special concentration upon Elizabethan verse drama.
