Pragmatics of fraus: Encoding and Decoding of Deceit in Seneca’s Troades and Thyestes

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution


The paper aims at exploring the most relevant strategies of encoding and decoding of fraus and simulatio in Seneca’s tragedies, especially in Troades and Thyestes, from both a pragmatic and a dramaturgical point of view. In this perspective, it also provides a working definition of fraus, having regard to the Roman cultural categories involved in the communication dynamics portrayed by Seneca.
