Abstract

Time and death are central issues in Seneca’s Epistulae. Ep.101 focuses on living each day as if it were complete and the last, which creates a polarity with other letters in the collection where the philosopher longs for immortality. Exemplarity may provide a possible way out of this conundrum. This article argues that the different exempla featured in this letter guide the reader’s attention to Seneca’s exemplary use of time built throughout the collection, and that this strategy allows the writer to transcend the limits of human temporality and reach a form of textual immortality.
