LUCRETIUS (Titus Lucretius Carus) lived from c. 99-c. 55 B.C., but the details of his career are unknown. He is the author of the great didactic poem in hexameters, De Rerum Natura (On the Nature of Things). In six books compounded of solid reasoning, brilliant imagination, and noble poetry, he expounds the scientific theories of the Greek philosopher Epicurus, with the aim of dispelling fear of the gods and fear of death and so enabling man to attain peace of mind and happiness. In Book 1 he establishes the general principles of the atomic system, refutes the views of rival physicists, and proves the infinity of the universe and of its two ultimate constituents, matter and void. In Book 2 he explains atomic movement, the variety of atomic shapes, and argues that the atoms lack colour, sensation, and other secondary qualities. In Book 3 he expounds the nature and composition of mind and spirit, proves their mortality, and argues that there is nothing to fear in death. Book 4 explains the nature of sensation and thought, and ends with an impressive account of sexual love. Book 5 describes the nature and formation of our world, astronomical phenomena, the beginnings of life on earth, and the development of civilization. In Book 6 the poet explains various atmospheric and terrestrial phenomena, including thunder, lightning, earthquakes, volcanoes, the magnet, and plagues. The whole work presents the age-long problem of religion and science; and throughout the interest is maintained by the importance of the subject, and the fervour and poetry of the author

This great poem stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature. Lost for more than a thousand years, its return to circulation in 1417 reintroduced dangerous ideas about the nature and meaning of existence and helped shape the modern world. - Amazon

Filosofická báseň věhlasného římského autora z 1. st. př. n. l. je ozvěnou Epikúrova učení, v němž zájem o člověka a jeho morálku je nadřazen výkladu přírody. Pochopením přírodního uspořádání věcí mají být lidé dovedeni k duševní vyrovnanosti. Nová verze překladu vznikla detailním přepracováním jeho původního znění. Překladatelka užívá verše podobného hexametru, leč zkráceného o jednu stopu či o jeden důraz

Since the publication of the 4th edition much work has been done both on the poem itself and on its Epicurean sources. It is the purpose of this edition to present the main results of that work, and to explain in general and in detail the meaning of the poem and its intention. Problems of text, language and interpretation are dealt with in relation to the main purpose of exposition. The edition is in three volumes, of which the first contains the Prolegomena and the text with translation on the opposite page; the Commentary on the six books occupies the other two volumes
