About this item

Using the Oedipus as a test case, this book proposes that Seneca's tragedies exemplify Seneca's own theory of literary decadence as expressed in his 114th letter to Lucilius. Seneca is thus revealed to be both theorist and practitioner of what has conventionally been regarded as 'Neronian decadence'.
