Lucretius and the Language of Nature

Barnaby Taylor

Oxford Classical Monographs

  • Combines both philosophical and literary approaches to the study of Lucretius and a key text in Latin philosophy
  • Offers new readings of several elements of Lucretian language and style
  • Places Lucretius in both his Epicurean context and the more immediate context of the growth in Latin philosophical writing in the first century
