About the Author:

William Ellery Leonard (1876-1944) was a poet and professor of English at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where he taught from 1906 until his death. Stanley Barney Smith (1895-1962) was professor of classics at Bowdoin College, 1927-1946. He also taught at the Ohio State University and the University of Illinois during his distinguished career.

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 Friedlander, "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"
