  • On the Nature of Things

    Story

    This famous work by Lucretius is a masterpiece of didactic poetry, and it still stands today as the finest exposition of Epicurean philosophy ever written. The poem was produced in the middle of first century B.C., a period that was to witness a flowering of Latin literature unequaled for beauty and intellectual power in subsequent ages. The Latin title, De Rerum Natura, translates literally to On the Nature of Things and is meant to impress the reader with the breadth and depth of Epicurean philosophy.

    Lawrence says: "A Masterpiece"
    "Lucretius becomes immortal!"

    Where does On the Nature of Things rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely one of the best.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    If it were a character, I would say the poetry itself


    What does Charlton Griffin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    If there were gods, and humans went to battle against them, win or lose, the story ought to be told by Charlton Griffin.

    Lucretius' De Rerum Natura is a marvel of poetry and philosophy, but you have to already know your classical poetry and philosophy to really savor every drop. But with Charlton Griffin, even those unfamiliar with the materialism, empiricism, hedonism and atheism of epicureanism, will be inspired to seriously ponder these ideas and read further on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had read this book before, but this audio version sent chills down my spine!


    Any additional comments?

    Do yourself and your loved ones a favor, and listen to this audiobook as you sit in front of a nice chimney fire.
