"Hope the Deceiver": Pseudo-Seneca "De Spe": Edited with Translation, Prolegomena and Commentary (Spudasmata: Studien zur Klassichen Philologie und ihren Grenzgebieten)

 
9783487107608:

Found in the "Anthologia Latina" and often printed among the "epigrams" dubiously attributed to Seneca the Younger, the elegaic poem "De Spe" is the longest extant work in classical Latin literature that portrays Hope as a negative quality. She "deceives" mortals, causing them to cling to life irrationally and to put their trust in the freaks of Fortune; she hold sway over a world of absurdity, and toys with deluded humanity in all stations of life.
