Abstract

322 European literature. He provides the reader with much interesting material; his discussion of it is illuminating and never swerves aside into fanciful speculation. His main thesis, viz. "in der Neuzeit folgt man bei Gestaltungen des antiken Stoffes in der Hauptsache dem Vorbilde Senecas", is proved beyond doubt. AMSTERDAM, Klassiek Seminarium, Singel 425 J. M.
