From the Dust Jacket: In the writings of Epicurus, Epictetus, Lucretius and Marcus Aurelius, Greek and Roman philosophy comes into its fullest flowering. The advocates of the principles of virtue and pleasure are brought together into a single inexpensive volume for the first time; hitherto their works were obtainable only in separate, expensive editions. The four thinkers here represented have been brilliantly translated by Cyril Bailey, H.A.J. Munro, P.E. Matheson and George Long. In addition, Cleanthes' famous poem Hymn to Zeus and Matthew Arnold's Essay on Marcus Aurelius are included

De rerum natura : libri sex by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

53 editions published between 1866 and 1978 in 3 languages and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the publication of the 4th edition much work has been done both on the poem itself and on its Epicurean sources. It is the purpose of this edition to present the main results of that work, and to explain in general and in detail the meaning of the poem and its intention. Problems of text, language and interpretation are dealt with in relation to the main purpose of exposition. The edition is in three volumes, of which the first contains the Prolegomena and the text with translation on the opposite page; the Commentary on the six books occupies the other two volumes

Aetna by Virgil( Book )

17 editions published between 1867 and 1991 in English and Latin and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The pseudo-Virgilian Aetna poem has fascinated textual critics for centuries on account of its badly corrupted state. But it is fascinating for its content as well. It appears to date from the first half of the first century AD sometime prior to 79, for it describes Vesuvius as extinct. The highly original account of a volcano with scientific, if eccentric, views of volcanic activity, is enlivened by vivid imagery, and digressions, such as a section in praise of physical science and the tale of two brothers who rescued their parents from an eruption. Robinson Ellis worked on the poem for decades, and his 1901 edition constitutes a significant contribution to its study. In her new introduction to this reissue of the complete Latin text and translation with Ellis's commentary, Katharina Volk discusses Ellis's achievement in the context of his career and as part of the history of critical engagement with Aetna
