About this product
- DescriptionPleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon ather's great tribulation; t because any man's troubles are a delectable joy, but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant. On The Nature of Things (De Rerum Natura) stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature. Lost for more than a thousand years, its return to circulation in 1417 reintroduced subversive ideas about the nature and meaning of existence and helped shape the modern world.
- Author BiographyTitus Lucretius Carus (c. 99 BC - c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the epic philosophical poem De Rerum Natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things.
