Justus Lipsius's De Constantia, A Stoic Spiritual Exercise

Poetics Today 28 (3):339-62 (2007)
This essay offers an introduction to Justus Lipsius's dialogue De Constantia, first published in 1584. Although the dialogue bears a superficial similarity to philosophical works of consolation, I suggest that it should be approached as a spiritual exercise written by Lipsius primarily for his own benefit.
