Summary/Abstract: The book is comprised of two parts. In the first part, apart from a general introduction into Seneca’s drama and its early reception, the questions of the title and the composition of Phoeni-cian Women are addressed anew and thoroughly discussed. The authors put forward their own interpretation of these problems accentuating the ties linking the play and the tradition of the Roman declamatory rhetoric. The second part contains a detailed commentary on the Seneca’s drama. The appendix includes a new critical edition of Phoenissae and a Polish translation of the play.
