'Once the tide of interest in Senecan tragedy has ebbed, what will be left on the shore for the classical beach comber? The work of Professor Zwierlein certainly. (...) Z.'s work is built to last. It is framed on uniquely spacious foundations. (...) The Prolegomena has two main sections. the first is on transmission. (...) His discussion of the florilegia and their value in confirming the worth of the recently elevated T is a model of analysis. The second section offers a new view on Seneca's use of the anapest, his favourite choral metre. (ROLAND MAYER in the Journal of Roman Studies, 1988, pp.245-46). From the library of the late Professor Doktor Nikolaus Himmelmann.
