Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BCE–65 CE) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, dramatist, statesman, and adviser to the emperor Nero, all during the Silver Age of Latin literature. The Complete Works of Lucius Annaeus Seneca is a fresh and compelling series of new English-language translations of his works in eight accessible volumes. Edited by world-renowned classicists Elizabeth Asmis, Shadi Bartsch, and Martha C. Nussbaum, this engaging collection restores Seneca—whose works have been highly praised by modern authors from Desiderius Erasmus to Ralph Waldo Emerson—to his rightful place among the classical writers most widely studied in the humanities. Anger, Mercy, Revenge comprises three key writings: the moral essays On Anger and On Clemency—which were penned as advice for the then young emperor, Nero—and the Apocolocyntosis, a brilliant satire lampooning the end of the reign of Claudius. Friend and tutor, as well as philosopher, Seneca welcomed the age of Nero in tones alternately serious, poetic, and comic—making Anger, Mercy, Revenge a work just as complicated, astute, and ambitious as its author.

Recent years have witnessed an increased interest in classical studies in the ways meaning is generated through the medium of intertextuality, namely how different texts of the same or different authors communicate and interact with each other. Attention (although on a lesser scale) has also been paid to the manner in which meaning is produced through interaction between various parts of the same text or body of texts within the overall production of a single author, namely intratextuality. Taking off from the seminal volume on Intratextuality: Greek and Roman Textual Relations, edited by A. Sharrock / H. Morales (Oxford 2000), which largely sets the theoretical framework for such internal associations within classical texts, this collective volume brings together twenty-seven contributions, written by an international team of experts, exploring the evolution of intratextuality from Late Republic to Late Antiquity across a wide range of authors, genres and historical periods. Of particular interest are also the combined instances of intra- and intertextual poetics as well as the way in which intratextuality in Latin literature draws on reading practices and critical methods already theorized and operative in Greek antiquity.

Anger is an emotion that affects everyone regardless of culture, class, race, or gender—but at the same time, being angry always results from the circumstances in which people find themselves. In On Anger, Sue J. Kim opens a stimulating dialogue between cognitive studies and cultural studies to argue that anger is always socially and historically constructed and complexly ideological, and that the predominant individualistic conceptions of anger are insufficient to explain its collective, structural, and historical nature. On Angerexamines the dynamics of racial anger in global late capitalism, bringing into conversation work on political anger in ethnic, postcolonial, and cultural studies with recent studies on emotion in cognitive studies. Kim uses a variety of literary and media texts to show how narratives serve as a means of reflecting on experiences of anger and also how we think about anger—its triggers, its deeper causes, its wrongness or rightness. The narratives she studies include the filmCrash, Maxine Hong Kingston’sThe Woman Warrior, Tsitsi Dangarembga’sNervous ConditionsandThe Book of Not, Ngugi wa Thiong’o’sDevil on the CrossandWizard of the Crow, and the HBO seriesThe Wire. Kim concludes by distinguishing frustration and outrage from anger through a consideration of Stéphane Hessel’s call to arms,Indignez-vous!One of the few works that focuses on both anger and race,On Anger demonstrates that race—including whiteness—is central to our conceptions and experiences of anger.

Der Kaiser Caligula (37–41 n. Chr.) gilt als Musterfall des römischen Cäsarenwahnsinns: Er trieb Inzest mit seinen Schwestern, wollte sein Pferd zum Konsul machen und plante, seinen Herrschaftssitz von Rom nach Alexandria zu verlegen. Er verfolgte die römischen Senatoren grausam und ohne Anlaß, ja er wollte schließlich als Gott von ihnen verehrt werden. So behaupten es zumindest die antiken Quellen. Ihr denunziatorischer, von nachweisbaren Falschaussagen geprägter Charakter ist zwar längst erkannt, ihrer Suggestion war jedoch auch die moderne Forschung immer wieder erlegen. Der Autor beschreibt das kurze, ereignisreiche Leben dieses Kaisers in neuer Deutung. Die Herrschaft Caligulas, so wird gezeigt, war durch eine dramatische Konfliktgeschichte geprägt, in deren Verlauf senatorische Verschwörungen und die kaiserlichen Reaktionen darauf die Ereignisse eskalieren ließen. Der junge Kaiser nutzte mit zynischer Konsequenz den Opportunismus und die Auflösungserscheinungen der alten Oberschicht zur Durchsetzung einer offenen Alleinherrschaft und setzte die senatorische Gesellschaft nie zuvor erlebten traumatischen Erfahrungen von Angst, Machtlosigkeit und Selbstzerstörung aus. Nach der Ermordung Caligulas durch eine Palastverschwörung verarbeiteten die Vertreter der gedemütigten Aristokratie mit «frischem Ha߻ (Tacitus) das Erlebte. Die Konstruktion eines «wahnsinnigen» Kaisers eignete sich zu dessen nachträglicher Entwertung ebenso wie zur Rechtfertigung der eigenen Beteiligung an dem, was vorgefallen war.
