Book Description:
This is a comprehensive study of Seneca's 'Hercules Furens'. Apart from illustrating the poetic language, the literary conventions and the dramatic technique of play, the book highlights the figure of the Roman Hercules in relation to its Greek model, the Euripidean Herakles. The introduction on myth, modern interpretations and textual transmission of the play is followed by a discussion of the German translation. Special attention is given to literary motifs and topoi as well as to Seneca's poetic language in its pivotal position between the Augustan poets and Neronian Flavian epic.
