Due padri, due figli: modelli drammatici 'al maschile' nelle Troiane di seneca

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In Senecan Troades the female component plays a prominent role; nevertheless the tragedy stages, with an evident reduplication, two exemplary cases of male pairs consisting of a father and a son: Achilles and Pyrrhus on the one hand, Hector and Astyanax on the other.The papers deals with that, according to the idea that Seneca composes the drama by re-reading the myth in the light of a crucial aspect of Latin thought such as the inheritance of values and patterns of behavior that passes from father to son.
