I highly recommend How To Die, edited and translated by James S. Romm, which is basically a collection of Seneca's essays and letters on the rather taboo topic of death and dying. I came across it during one of my numerous excursions through the library stacks and once I read it, I had to buy myself a copy. One of my favorite quotes is this: "Quam stultum est mare horrere, cum scias stillicidio perire te posse!" ["How foolish, to fear the sea, when you know that a droplet can destroy you!"- as per Romm's translation]. Fantastic read all around.
