The notes in this are great! Very informative. Mar 03, Jaidyn rated it really liked it. Seneca is personally my favorite writers of the Stoic classics. This particular translation was pretty good, but defintiely not my favorite. I understand the reasoning given as to why it was only a selection of the letters of Seneca MUCH more than the overly hyped Penguin Classics edition And even if there may be some repitition or similar topics covered from others, all Seneca is personally my favorite writers of the Stoic classics.
And even if there may be some repitition or similar topics covered from others, all need to be included. That said, I still gave the book a fair shot. It was much better of a translation that the Penguin Classics version, but not as good as the much older edition done by Gummere A book from the early 's is an easier read than a much more recent edition? That is indeed the case, at least for me.

The notes for each letter are clear and give an overview of the themes Seneca writes about. Thought provoking and some of them give an insight into the workings of Roman times. A book borrowed from the library, and one which I intend to buy for my own collection. A slightly odd selection: I think Seneca has more interesting things to say than one might guess reading some of these.
The notes are very thorough. Me encanta.
