I shudder to think what would have happened if the tatty manuscript of De rerum natura (Lucretius Carus 1997) had not been found by Poggio Bracolini in a German monastery in 1417.
A considerer cette vie incorruptible des corps celestes, leur beaute, leur grandeur, leur agitation continuee d'une si juste regle: cum suspicimus magni caelestia mundi/ Templa super, stellisque micantibus Aethera fixum,/ Et venit in mentem lunae solisque viarum [Lucretius, de rerum natura V: 1203J; A considerer la domination et puissance que ces corps-la ont, non seulement sur nos vies et conditions de notre fortune, facta etenim et vitas hominum suspendit ab astris .
1) This is rendered surprising by Vitruvius's active engagement with and enthusiasm for Lucretius, who stands out as an iconoclastic critic of such grandiose and ambitious monumental pretentions, since the atomistic physics and linguistics of De rerum natura emphatically limit the possibility that any monument might be everlasting, be it made of marble, bronze, or words.
In his attempt to follow Fracastoro's syntax and word choice as closely as possible, Eatough carefully introduces the modern reader to the world of Renaissance humanism: we are here exposed to Fracastoro's interest in De rerum natura and the Lucretian description of atoms ("semina") as well as to the humanists' fascination with ancient geography, according to whom the "oikoumene" consisted of three continents (Europe, Asia, and Africa).
Se trata de su libro Lucrecio: la filosofia como liberacion (5) que es una exegesis analitica del poema De rerum natura de Lucrecio, es decir, Acerca de la naturaleza de las cosas (6).
La presencia de fenomenos celestes fue uno de los temas principales de la discusion en la filosofia natural y, por lo tanto, lo que alimento parte de lo que Telesio escribio en su obra mas amplia e importante sobre filosofia natural, De rerum natura iuxta principia, cuya primera impresion es de 1565, la segunda de 1570 y la tercera de 1586.
En un breve pasaje comenta el prologo del libro 5 (elogio a Epicuro) del De rerum natura y, despues de recusar los sistemas filosoficos de la Antiguedad, dedica (3.
No es muy importante discutir si es, o no, una novela en verso, aunque sin duda es un catalogo, como De rerum natura, y una historia, como El paraiso perdido.
Tracing as it does the genesis, loss and rediscovery of Lucretius' great philosophical epic De rerum natura, Greenblatt's book sets out to examine the part played by a particular literary work in the formation of the modern world.
The apparatus criticus is accompanied by a second apparatus that lists parallels to classical texts; this is especially interesting because it shows Vida writing not only through his expected Virgilian model but also fashioning enough echoes of De rerum natura to make the Christias a sort of anti-Lucretius.
A tese de Greenblatt pode ser assim sintetizada: o mundo em que vivemos hoje nao existiria da forma como o concebemos nao fosse a redescoberta e a circulacao da doutrina do atomismo, tal qual descrita por Lucrecio em De rerum natura (Sobre a natureza das coisas).
No hace falta haber leido El giro, ese magnifico ensayo con el que Stephen Greenblatt gano en 2012 el Premio Pulitzer, y que narra como el humanista Poggio Bracciolini redescubrio el De rerum natura de Lucrecio, para sentir que la publicacion de un manuscrito inedito es uno de los hechos fundamentales de la cultura, en general, y de la filologia, en particular.
