Inhaltsangabe: The third book of Lucretius' great poem on the workings of the universe is devoted entirely to expounding the implications of Epicurus' dictum that death does not matter, 'is nothing to us'. The soul is not immortal: it no more exists after the dissolution of the body than it had done before its birth. Only if this fact is accepted can men rid themselves of irrational fears and achieve the state of ataraxia, freedom from mental disturbance, on which the Epicurean definition of pleasure was based. To present this case Lucretius deploys the full range of poetic and rhetorical registers, soberly prohibitive, artfully decorative or passionately emotive as best suits his argument, reinforcing it with vivid and compelling imagery. This new edition has been completely revised, with the Commentary considerably enlarged and a new supplementary introduction taking account of the great amount of new scholarship of the last forty years.

Inhaltsangabe: The best available guide to appreciating the literary art of this book expounding the implications of Epicurus' dictum that death does not matter.

Buchbeschreibung Buchzustand: Antiquarian. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1971. 1st ed. VIII,260p. Paperback. Front cover a tiny little bit creased. Paper to tail spine a bit wrinkled. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. 'Kenney has well succeeded in his aim, which is 'to provide the student with the guidance that he needs for the interpretation and understanding of the book as a work of literature'. His Introduction (.), devided into six sections (The Doctrine, The Poet, The Poem, The Poetry, Book III, The Text), is always interesting and thought-provoking, even when not entirely convincing. The text (.) is provided with an up-to-date apparatus of just the right length. The commentary is scholarly, thorough, perceptive, and economical. The treatment of stylistic and linguistic matters is particularly good.' (MARTIN F. SMITH in The Classical Review (New Series), 1974, p.204). From the library of Prof. Carl Deroux. Antiquarian. Artikel-Nr. 48225
