Seneca s Thyestes Book Description:

"Although the 'Thyestes' is widely acknowledged to be one of Seneca's most powerful tragedies, there has until now been no modern commentary on the play in any language. My principal aim has thus been to make this extraordinary work more widely accessible and so contribute to a greater appreciation of its quality. The 'Thyestes' seems to me an even better and richer play now that it did when I embarked on this commentary; I hope that the pleasure I have had in exploring it will be reflected in what I have written, and that my enthusiasm will offer some compensation for my failures of understanding." -- preface, p. [ix].
