Lucretius: De Rerum Natura Book 3 (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics) - used book

ISBN: 0521291771

ID: 3248939

The De Rerum Natura of Lucretius is a sustained and impassioned protest against religious superstition and irrationality. The poem takes the form of a detailed exposition of Epicurean physical theory - an extreme materialism designed to remove and discredit popular fears of the gods, death and an afterlife. Book III is generally accepted to be the finest in the whole poem; Lucretius argues there that the soul is as mortal as the body and shows that human response to the fact of mortality and death can be at once rational, dignified and liberating. Professor Kenney's commentary is the first to give proper critical emphasis to the techniques and intentions of Lucretius' poetry; it can be read with profit by all students of Latin from senior school level upwards. ancient and classical literature,ancient classical and medieval,caribbean and latin american,classics,education and reference,fiction,foreign language,foreign language learning,foreign language study,foreign language study and reference Philosophy, Cambridge University Press
