Lucrèce, Vandoeuvres–Genève, Lucretius has books on Goodreads with ratings. Lucretius’s most popular book is The Way Things Are. Throughout the first three books of On the Nature of the Universe Lucretius walks a thin line between philosophy, science and poetry.

In Book 4 he sets out to prove once again that the universe is composed only of physical bits of matter called atoms and that gods did not create the cosmos nor do they intervene in human affairs.

Apart from Lucretius’s poem almost nothing is known about him. The little evidence available is quite inconclusive. Jerome, a leading Latin Church Father, in his chronicle for the year 94 bce (or possibly 96 or 93 bce), stated that Lucretius was born in that year and that years afterward a love potion drove him written some books in lucid intervals, which Cicero afterward.

In his new book, author and Harvard literature professor Stephen Greenblatt explores the 2, year-old writings of Lucretius and his "spookily modern" creation tale. Lucretius divided his argument into six books, beginning each with a highly polished introduction.

Books I and II establish the main principles of the atomic universe, refute the rival theories of the pre-Socratic cosmic philosophers Heracleitus, Empedocles, and Anaxagoras, and covertly attack the Stoics, a school of moralists rivaling that of Epicurus.

The great fact of Lucretius's life, at least of what is known of it, is his poem, a didactic epic in six books (7, verses, not counting lines lost in transmission) bearing the title De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things); evidence that Lucretius gave his work this title is that he plays upon it in the proem to book 1.

Readers of Shoaf's book will encounter anew, through both fresh evidence and close reading, Shakespeare's universally acknowledged commitment to the art of nature and the nature of art.

Lucretius’ De rerum natura is one of the relatively few corpora of Greek and Roman literature that is structured in six books. It is distinguished as well by features that encourage readers to understand it both as a sequence of two groups of three books (1+2+3, 4+5+6) and also as three successive pairs of books (1+2, 3+4, 5+6).

In a recent article and a subsequent book Charles Segal finds a paradox in the writing of Lucretius, a paradox which, it might appear, was not to be evaded if the author wished to be both an Epicurean and a poet.(1) On the one hand, his creed makes death as certain for the world as for its denizens and the hope of immortal glory an ignis fatuus; on the other hand, the poet has all the mortal.

The de-versification of Lucretius -- treating it as prose -- is an unintended theme of the most famous contemporary account of Of Things' Nature, Stephen Greenblatt's The Swerve: How the World Became Modern ().Greenblatt begins The Swerve with an account of his youthful discovery of Lucretius through Martin Ferguson Smith's excellent prose translation.Introduction to Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things Cyril Baley O f the three great Latin poets Lucretius seems to make the most peculiar appeal to our own age.
