Roman Tragedy IX: Seneca’s Phoenissae, or I Think I Missed Something

What Phoenician women? No. Really. Where are they?

Discussion Prompts

  1. Who is the best stoic in this play?
  2. What does this play have to say about parenthood and the relationship between parents and children?
  3. Write the fifth act of this play.
  4. Why do you think this play is called Phoenissae?
  5. Add a chorus to this play. Who are they? What do they say?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
