Product Description:

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BCE-65 CE) was a Roman Stoic philosopher dramatist statesman and advisor 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 series helps restore Seneca-whose works have been highly praised by modern authors from Desiderius Erasmus to Ralph Waldo Emerson - to his rightful place among the classical writers most widely studied in the humanities. Hardship and Happiness collects a range of essays intended to instruct from consolations - works that offer comfort to someone who has suffered a personal loss - to pieces on how to achieve happiness or tranquility in the face of a difficult world. Expertly translated the essays will be read and used by undergraduate philosophy students and experienced scholars alike.
