4 LUCRETIUS; CLAUSEN, WENDELL (INTRODUCTION). Of The Nature Of Things.
Washington Square Press, New York: 1965. First Washington Square Printing. s Softcover. Good condition. 
While the turbulent deeds of men such as Caesar, Pompey, and Cicero were deciding the fate of the Roman Empire, Titus Lucretius Carus was writing his magnificent poem on the nature of the universe. Lucretius was a disciple of Epicurus, who had taught that pleasure -- or the absence of pain -- is the aim of life. Not only a poem of great beauty, On the Nature of Things is also the most complete surviving exposition on the scientific, ethical, and logical theories of Epicurus. Lucretius lived in a time of great national turmoil. His poem survives the fears and chaos of his age as one of the great works of the human spirit. This edition employs the vigorous prose translation of H. A. J. Munroe in its second revised version..
