On the Nature of Things

By Lucretius


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.
