Roman Tragedy X: Seneca’s Hercules on Oeta, or The Long Kiss Goodnight

Hercules goes on and on and on and on and on…

Discussion Prompts

  1. Do you think Seneca wrote this play? Explain.
  2. What does this play say about love?
  3. Who is the best stoic in this play?
  4. What does Alcmena show us about grief? Faith?
  5. The usual directing questions: How would you stage this? Dream cast? And everything else about this as a play.

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.
