Re: What books are you currently reading?

After reading somewhere that Shakespeare was heavily influenced by Seneca's tragedies, I picked up a collection of new English translations by Emily Wilson.

This one:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Six-Tragedi...=six+tragedies

The similarities are striking, in places almost bordering on plagiarism. But you can't have too much of a good thing, I suppose

My favourite of the collection is probably Medea going totally berserk over Jason wanting to divorce her and marry a younger wife instead. The pure hatred and vengeful insanity is breathtaking. Almost like a play version of an epic black metal record.

That the plays were written 2000 years ago is mind-blowing to me, since many of the themes are still highly relevant today. Perhaps especially so, if seen in the light of the current political climate in the US. Stories about people losing their minds to hate and disappointment, murdering everyone they can get their hands on. Recommended.
