Lucretius: De Rerum Natura

Chris Kelk's excellent new rhymed translation of Lucretius' De Rerum Natura: On the Nature of Things is now online here

A didactic work about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, which includes Lucretius' transfer into Latin of the Greek atomistic theory, it is interesting both for its summary of contemporary thinking in the late Roman Republic, and the poetic treatment of his themes.
