Reissued to accompany Stephen Greenblatt's The Swerve: the epic poem that changed the course of human thought forever.
This great poem stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature. Lost for more than a thousand years, its return to circulation in 1417 reintroduced dangerous ideas about the nature and meaning of existence and helped shape the modern world.
