Who does not know that bugles and trumpets stir the mind, just as certain songs are charms to relax the mind? Green things help irritated eyes and certain colors soothe weak vision, while others dazzle with their splendor: in this same way pleasurable studies soothe troubled minds. 22 Although he does not explicitly mention the composition of poetry in this context, it is implied in his discussion of the lyre and the cantus of relaxation since both are regular metonyms for poetry. 34) illuminates the poetic tradition that Seneca has in mind in recommending poetry as a “lighter” enterprise intended to offer relaxation.

As Martha Nussbaum (1993, 131) has noted, Plutarch (ad 46–120), the Greek historian and essayist, compares a student’s situation when hearing poetry to Odysseus’ in listening to the Sirens. Rather than plugging the ears with wax, the Stoics recommend instead controlling the students’ response by binding them to “some upright standard of reason” offered by their teachers (Moralia 15d). In his essay “On the Way in Which Young Men Should Read the Poets,” Plutarch (15f–16a) shares Strabo’s view that poetry is a form of philosophy for the young and illustrates the teacher’s role in fostering among them what Nussbaum has called “critical spectatorship” (1993, 136–145).
