• Description : The question of why Seneca wrote tragedy has been debated since at least the 13th century. Since Seneca was a Stoic, critics assumed he wrote with the standard Stoic theory of literature as education in philosophy in mind. This book argues that Seneca was influenced by Aristotle's famous defense of tragedy against Plato's critique. [...] by Publisher : 'OUP USA'

• Description : In the early Elizabethan period, nine of the ten tragedies attributed to the ancient Roman statesman, philosopher, and playwright Seneca (c. 1 BCE-65 CE) were translated for the first time into English, and these translations shaped Seneca's dramatic legacy as it would be known to later authors and playwrights. This edition enables readers to appreciate the distinct style and aims of three milestone translations: Jasper Heywood's Troas (1559) and Thyestes (1560), and John Studley's Agamemnon (1566). The plays are presented in modern spelling and accompanied by critical notes clarifying the translators' approaches to rendering Seneca in English. The introduction provides important context, including a survey of the transmission and reception of Seneca from the first through to the sixteenth century and an analysis and comparison of the style of the three translations.

• Description : Why aren't you healed? Do you ever feel like you continually struggle with certain emotions? Do hurt, rejection, anger, and anxiety rise up in you, causing an overreaction and taking on a life of their own? Maybe you've tried personal prayer, standing in faith, counseling, and various ministries, yet no matter what you do, nothing seems to work. If traditional prayer and deliverance hasn't cut it, you might be dealing with soul fragments. When we experience a traumatizing event, part of our coping strategy is to wall off a little piece of ourselves in order to contain that emotion. We then go on with life. A fragment is that part of you that's been locked away, inaccessible to healing, at least to the usual methods. This book is a game changer in how you'll look at inner healing. We aren't going to beat the drum for repentance and forgiveness although those are beneficial and necessary. Instead, we have made every effort to tell you something you don't know so that you can fill in your missing pieces. But let's be honest. Going into the depths of your soul might seem a little scary. After all, you did shut that door for a reason. The whole prospect of working with fragments might feel over your head. Don't worry, we explain in plain English a variety of techniques and exercises with loads of real-life examples, and Jesus does all the work. You don't have to relive your trauma, remember any complicated protocol, or feel like you're losing control. You'll learn: How to recognize and interact with fragments What the healing of fragments can mean for your physical health The role that deliverance plays in dealing with soul fragmentation How you can minister to others How even complex issues like Dissociative Identity Disorder and Satanic Ritual Abuse can be healed. This book is for you if you struggle with any of the following: Irrational or unexplained fears Stubborn or perpetual negative emotions Overreactions to seemingly small problems Any type of childhood trauma Losing blocks of time or inability to remember certain events or periods in life, or A tendency to "check out" in certain situations. Lets get you on your way to wholeness! [...] by Publisher : 'no defined'

• Description : The forced suicide of Seneca, former adviser to Nero, is one of the most tortured--and most revisited--death scenes from classical antiquity. After fruitlessly opening his veins and drinking hemlock, Seneca finally succumbed to death in a stifling steam bath, while his wife Paulina, who had attempted suicide as well, was bandaged up and revived by Nero's men. From the first century to the present day, writers and artists have retold this scene in order to rehearse and revise Seneca's image and writings, and to scrutinize the event of human death. In The Deaths of Seneca, James Ker offers the first comprehensive cultural history of Seneca's death scene, situating it in the Roman imagination and tracing its many subsequent interpretations. Ker shows first how the earliest accounts of the death scene by Tacitus and others were shaped by conventions of Greco-Roman exitus-description and Julio-Claudian dynastic history. At the book's center is an exploration of Seneca's own prolific writings about death--whether anticipating death in his letters, dramatizing it in the tragedies, or offering therapy for loss in the form of consolations--which offered the primary lens through which Seneca's contemporaries would view the author's death. These ancient approaches set the stage for prolific receptions, and Ker traces how the death scene was retold in both literary and visual versions, from St. Jerome to Heiner M?ller and from medieval illuminations to Peter Paul Rubens and Jacques-Louis David. Dozens of interpreters, engaging with prior versions and with Seneca's writings, forged new and sometimes controversial views on Seneca's legacy and, more broadly, on mortality and suicide. The Deaths of Seneca presents a new, historically inclusive, approach to reading this major Roman author. [...] by Publisher : 'Oxford University Press'
