De rerum natura

By Lucretius

Ispirato alla tradizione greca di poemi didascalici oggi andati perduti, il De rerum natura è al contempo un'opera letteraria ricca d'immagini evocative, invenzioni linguistiche, picchi lirici e passaggi avvincenti quali los angeles celebre fenomenologia dell'amore e l. a. toccante descrizione della peste di Atene.
