Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca, or Seneca the Younger) (c. 4 BC – AD 65) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin. At some stage he was nursed by his aunt; as she was in Egypt from 16 to 31 CE, he must have at least visited and perhaps lived for a period in Hellenistic Egypt. Seneca and his aunt returned to Rome in 31, and she helped him in his campaign for his first magistracy.

Among the personalities of the early Roman Empire there are few who offer to the readers of to-day such. Among the personalities of the early Roman Empire there are few who offer to the readers of to-day such dramatic interest as does Lucius Annaeus Seneca, the author of the Epistles which are translated in this volume. In these letters, it is impossible to ignore the advance from a somewhat stiff and Ciceronian point of view into the attractive and debatable land of what one may fairly call modern ideas

I bought this book as a text for a Latin course. Overall, it is a very good text. The only criticism I have is that the notes on the opposing pages, which elaborate on things and provide some vocabulary, could probably have been a little more comprehensive. Often, less obscure words are provided when there are more obscure words that probably should have been. Also, it would have been beneficial at some points to have elaboration on some of the culturally specific references which were crucial to accurate translation and understanding. By no means should this be construed as a negative review. The book, overall, is excellent.

This book is great for those who are well advanced in their Latin studies, however, if you do not have a good grasp of vocabulary I would not recommend it. The commentary is not always helpful and the vocabulary listed on the side is, even though listed in the dictionary, not the greatest because it does not list words that are more difficult to translate. Overall, the book is fine, but not the greatest for those still getting their feet wet in Latin.
lacki
The commentary is minimal and rarely helpful, certainly not worth its price. The old school edn. by Summers is much better for students at any level.

This is a great edition of Seneca. Each epistle has commentary and vocabulary on the left, latin on the right, which makes it easy for translation. Also has a glossary in the back, which is somewhat helpful.

Seneca is a terrific read. Everything about his moral epistles--their style, their topics--evokes the chaotic, whirling, world-out-of-balance picture associated with the Roman Empire in the 1st century A.D. One hears in his voice the tension of a man earnestly trying to be a "healer of souls" while acknowledging that in maddening times, it's hard enough work maintaining the health of one's own. In short, his epistles are good reading for the modern student staring out on a world that seems to be spinning out of any one man or nation's control. Seneca probably would enjoy a greater readership in schools if it weren't for that taint of "Silver Age" attached to the literature of his generation.
He is not, after all, difficult to read. One quickly gets the hang of his style--his fondness for the pithy remark, unexpected reversal, or direct address to the reader; one learns to take the platitudes along with the more penetrating and insightful passages. For the Latin teacher (or independent yet highly-motivated student) who'd like to give Seneca a try in the classroom, Motto's edition is a congenial one. The selection of letters is numerous (40 or so) and wide-ranging. Chapter vocabularies, which include what I would call some elementary words, save the beginning or intermediate student time not having to flip to the glossary in the back. I find fault only with the commentary, which seems unusually sparse. In some places, it hardly numbers four or five lines. Teachers must therefore be prepared to explain a lot of grammar and syntax, not to mention content, to their students. But even with that shortcoming, I hope teachers and students alike will enjoy and treasure this edition.

This is an excellent text for those wishing to read Seneca's Moral Epistles in Latin. The inclusion of notes on opposing pages helps the student learn vocabulary and understand the text better. You can't go wrong with this edition.
