This blog is a line-by-line commentary of the moral Epistles and Essays of Seneca the Younger, beginning with his Epistle 1.  Each post contains a passage quoted from Seneca in bold at the top of the post, followed by commentary.

     The reader is encouraged to read the posts in chronological order, from oldest to newest (see "Blog Archive").  Alternatively, the reader may simply read posts about topics that interest him or her (see "Topics").  Since this is a line-by-line commentary of the philosophical works of Seneca, the reader is also encouraged to acquire a copy of both his Epistles and his Essays.

     All passages quoted from Seneca are my own translations into English from the original Latin.
