Seneca adapt/trans Ranjit Bolt

Published by Absolute Classics

In this new translation Seneca's poetic account of this classic story reveals the passion for rhetoric that was to have such a strong influence on Elizabethan drama and particularly on Marlowe and the young Shakespeare

In his madness he will commit atrocities that will preclude his ascension to Heaven
