Seneca the Younger (c. 4 BC – AD 65), fully Lucius Annaeus Seneca and also known simply as Seneca (/ˈsɛnɪkə/), was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and-in one work-satirist of the Silver Age of Latin literature.

Oedipus is a fabula crepidata (Roman tragic play with Greek subject) of c. 1061 lines of verse that was written by Lucius Annaeus Seneca at some time during the 1st century AD.

Oedipus is a fabula crepidata (Roman tragic play with Greek subject) of c. It is a retelling of the story of Oedipus, which is better known through the play Oedipus Rex by the Athenian playwright, Sophocles. It is written in Latin. The play is generally considered one of Seneca's weaker works.

His father, Lucius Annaeus Seneca (see Vol. 4), wrote the well-known Controversaie (Controversies) and Suasoriae (Persuasions), which are collections of arguments used in rhetorical training, and his nephew Lucan was the epic poet of the civil war. Educated in rhetoric an. . Educated in rhetoric and philosophy in Rome, he found the Stoic doctrine especially compatible. The younger Seneca became famous as an orator but was exiled by the Emperor Claudius. He was recalled by the Empress Agrippina to become the tutor of her son, the young Nero.

Seneca's father, also Lucius Annaeus Seneca (the Elder), was a Roman nobleman of the equestrian class. The Elder's enthusiasm for Roman politics and his enthusiasm for his two older sons' potential in Roman society are plain in his Controversiae. Also plain is his insistence that the path for his middle son, our Seneca, was to be the normal cursus honorum (course of offices) and not the life of philosophical study.

It is many years since I read Sophocles' Oedipus. I found it then to be a most wonderful and exciting drama. more so than when I saw it on the stage. Reading this Ted Hughes' version of Seneca's Oedipus, I found the use of the english language to be overwhelmingly breathtaking, that the visual imagery conveyed by the words at times magnificently appropriately awful, and the story always gripping. Hughes used the words in relatively short phrases, like thoughts and fragments of thoughts but always with clear meaning. Recently performed in Melbourne, but unable to see it, I read a review of the performance, which prompted me to search for the book. It surpassed my expectations. A thoroughly good read.

And the book was in good fair condition, as described.

This is Ted Hughes in top form. While I think "The October Salmon" from RIVER is his greatest single poem, his translations of Seneca's OEDIPUS and Racine's PHEDRE and Euripedes' ALCESTIS are not just among the great works of the past century, translated or otherwise, but are the very pinnacle of great verse and outstrip even his own poems. His translations of Lorca's BLOOD WEDDING and Wedekind's SPRING AWAKENING are not to be missed either. Seneca's OEDIPUS is available I believe only in softcover. This work, by the way, is less a translation than a gigantic explosion of blood and fate intermingled. These "translations" shrivel all competitors.
