This innovative set of studies on the reception of Lucretius is organized round three major themes: history and time, the sublime, and knowledge.

The De Rerum Natura presents a confident account of the ultimate truths of the universe; later didactic and epic poets respond with varying degrees of certainty or uncertainty to the challenge of Lucretius' Epicurean gospel"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
