Seneca in Corsica free pdf Excerpt from Seneca in Corsica The inconsistent and tragic career of Nero's mentor will always pique the interest of the student of the temperamental genius. On the score of temperament much atrocious viciousness has been sugared over. Inconsistency and lack of moral fibre are often yoke-fellows of brilliant creative ability, but art per se is unmoral, and a work of art, the coinage of ones brain, should be judged on its own merits. Seneca was monstrously inconsistent, guilty of indirection, a lover of the pomp and purple of the court, peradventure even morally oblique from the view-point of those trained to the home-bred virtues, at least his reputation at Rome was ragged- but we must remember that Seneca never posed as a paragon of virtue. Not infrequently in his "Letters to Lucilius" he confesses past lapses: "non de me nunc tecum loquor, qui multum ab homine tolerabili, nedum a perfecto absum, sed de illo, in quern fortuna ius perdidit: " (Epist. Ivii. 3.) Maugre all this, he was a man of surprisingly fresh intellect, of glittering attainments, a creator of many golden opinions, a master of sparkling rhetoric, and a philosopher and ethical teacher of no mean water all of which has rightly guaranteed for him a passport to fame. In this dissertation, I shall limit myself to the period from the time when the poignant jealousy of Valeria Messalina drove both Seneca and Julia Livilla, the lovely, albeit dissolute sister of Caligula, into exile(41 A. D.), until the ambitious Agrippina effected Senecas recall, after the murder of Messalina(49 A. D.). While by no means overlooking modern works, I have spared no pains in examining the ancient source material- and wherever possible, I have had Seneca speak for himself.
