Summary

The collection of the elder Seneca is an underutilized resource for understanding the highly interactive literary scene of the Augustan Age and beyond. This book gives voice to two prominent declaimers: Arellius Fuscus, rhetor to Ovid, and Papirius Fabianus, teacher of the younger Seneca. Using the ‘shared locus’ as a key organizing principle, the author offers new insights into declamation and its interconnections with canonical literature.
