Product Description

This new, nearly line-by-line translation is in rhyming couplets and uses modern terminology to reflect the impact of Lucretius's work, a didactic poem in six books that expounds his philosophical beliefs. A profound exploration of the human relation to the earth, to the world, and to the Gods, 'The Nature of Things' (c.50 BC) was to have a huge influence on poets such as Virgil. Notes, Glossary of Proper Names. 265p.
