A Celebration of Seneca

Translating the Ancient World with David Slavitt, Kelly Cherry, Rachel Hadas and Stephen Sandy

Mar 22, 1996 | 7:00 pm

Ancient bust of Seneca

T.S. Eliot said the Elizabethan stage was perfumed by the work of Seneca. However, these Roman verse plays are virtually unknown today. Four distinguished translators – David Slavitt, Kelly Cherry, Rachel Hadas and Stephen Sandy – will discuss the relevance of his work and the translation process, and join in a reading in belated honor of the Ides of March.
