Editorial Reviews

Review

“A tremendous amount of material which will undoubtedly prove of great value to the students of Lucretius.”—Phillip de Lacy, "Classical Philology "(1943)

“A volume which no student of Lucretius, of the classics, of philosophic literature can afford to ignore.”—Paul Friedländer, "American Journal of Philology "(1945)

“For students approaching Lucretius this remains the only commentary in English on the entire work in one volume. Leonard’s passionate introduction is a signal milestone in the history of the poem’s reception, while the notes in Smith’s commentary are a helpful guide to interpretation.”—Peter Knox, editor of "Oxford""Readings"" in Ovid"
