Lucan *

a.k.a. Marcus Annaeus Lucanus

Author Code: CMAL

Born: Nov. 3, 39 AD - Cordoba, Spain

Died: Apr. 30, 65 AD - Rome, Italy

Lucan was from a prominent Roman family which included Seneca the Elder and Seneca the Younger, his grandfather and uncle, respectively. He became close friends with Nero during their childhood, and when Nero came to power, Lucan became a poet of prominence at the Emperor's court. During this period, his work on the Civil War (Pharsalia) was begun. As Nero became more deranged, Lucan's friendship with him deteriorated until, at last, Lucan joined the conspiracy of Piso to overthrow Nero. Unfortunately, the conspiracy was discovered and Lucan was forced to commit suicide. The Pharsalia was left unfinished at his death and consisted of ten books, which are the only works of Lucan to have survived. As a poetic work, the Pharsalia is brilliant and ranks among the best of Greco-Roman literature. As an historical document, however, it is inaccurate on many facts and events.
