I don't just read Seneca. We're involved. He's so vivid to me. I had to stop reading when it came to recollection of his slow death, and that of his wife. It just upset me too much. Nero was such a waste of space.
Seneca wasn't a self-involved man. Although he was Stoic (the originators of the ekpyrotic view of the universe's creation), you can tell he wasn't about stifling his feelings. He felt things rather intensely, I think, but strove for objectivity. The letters to comfort his mother during his exile is a good example of this. His language is very accessible too. He had a way with words.
