Cicero On the Nature of the Gods

Carus Titus Of The Nature of Things - The Original Classic Edition


On the Nature of Things is the only surviving work of the Roman philosopher Lucretius, born in 99 BC. In On the Nature of Things, Lucretius sought to liberate his fellow Romans from their fear of the gods, and their fear of death. <p> Lucretius argued that the gods are not directly involved in life, and therefore there is no need to appease them; he also argued that death is the end of a human beings body and soul, and therefore there is no point in fearing it. An unforgettable amalgamation of insight, now in a new English translation. <p> On the Nature of Things deserves the highest recommendation especially for public and college library collections.

Марк Туллий Цицерон Treatise on Rhetorical Invention and Treatise on Topics


Cicero placed a high value on the importance of mastering the skill of rhetoric, which is the art of using language as a means to persuade. Such a skill was important especially in the practice of law and politics, of which he did both. In the «Treatise of Rhetorical Invention» Cicero outlines his theories on rhetoric in this early composition. In «Topics» we find an exposition of the tools that an orator may avail himself of in crafting a convincing argument. Cicero is thought of as one of the greatest orators of all time and it is due in no small part to his mastery of rhetoric. This collection, translated by C. D. Yonge, will give the reader great insight into the skill of rhetoric as it was thought of and practiced by an early master of the skill.

Anatole France The Gods Will Have Blood (The Gods are Athirst)


Anatole France's work «Les dieux ont soif» translates to «The Gods Will Have Blood» or «The Gods are Athirst.» Both translations of the title accurately depict the nature of this novel set during the French Revolution. Young artist Évariste Gamelin is the right-hand man of Jacobin, Marat, and Robespierre and eventually becomes appointed as a juror on the Revolutionary Tribunal during the heinous Reign of Terror. Though Gamelin fully believes in the ideas of revolution and liberty, he uses his position of power to terrorize his friends and family who do not agree with his zealous ideals. Yet his bloodthirsty nature is put to an end when he, along with his mentor Robespierre, is beheaded during the aftermath of the Thermidorian Reaction. «The Gods Will Have Blood» was published in 1912, and author Anatole France received the Nobel Prize for Literature in honor of his literary achievements. The text shows the dangers a fervently angry country and the terror that can arise when the public is allowed to dole out its own version of justice with random death sentences. It shows the consequences when humanity is consumed by an idea, even a good idea, that is allowed to become more important than the people who hold it.

Homer The Iliad


Probably composed in the eighth century B.C. and based on an actual historical event of the thirteenth century B.C., Homer's Iliad is one of the great epics of the Western world. The poem unfolds near the end of the ten-year-long Trojan War, detailing the quarrel between the great warrior-hero Achilles and King Agamemnon, the battle between Paris and Menelaus for Helen of Troy, the Greek assault on the city and the Trojan counterattacks, the intervention of the gods on the part of their favorites, and numerous other incidents and events.Vast in scope, possessing extraordinary lyricism and poignancy, this time-honored masterpiece brilliantly conveys the inconsistencies of gods and men, the tumultuous intensity of conflict, and the devastation that results from war. This inexpensive edition reproduces the celebrated Samuel Butler prose translation, admired for its simple, unadorned style, clarity, and readability.
