On the Nature of Things Paperback


Martin Ferguson Smith's work on Lucretius is both well known and highly regarded.

However, his 1969 translation of De Rerum Natura --long out of print--is virtually unknown.

Readers will share our excitement in the discovery of this accurate and fluent prose rendering.

For this edition, Professor Smith provides a revised translation, new Introduction, headnotes and bibliography.
