Quid, anime, cessas?

La Medea di Seneca tra elegia, tragedia e suggestioni catulliane

Abstract

This paper aims at underlining how Seneca’s Medea addresses, in the tragedy, her own animus. This focus allows us to better understand how the character Medea is built by Seneca and to investigate the connections of this text not only with elegy, but also with the Catullan sensibility.
