After reading "The Swerve" by Stephen Greenblatt, I wanted to read the book he was discussing. I can't read Latin and this is one of three translations I attempted -- it is absolutely the best, mirroring both the content and the form of Lucretius's original words. As one of the books that apparently brought us The Enlightenment from the Dark Ages, it is fully relevant for criticial thinkers today.
