Herculaneum, a small Roman town on the Bay of Naples, was destroyed in AD 79 by the same catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius that buried Pompeii. Sealed deep under a layer of hardened volcanic sludge the town is still only partially excavated. Yet it is one of the most evocative of Roman sites. Each year thousands of visitors walk the silent streets of the town and explore the reconstructed houses, shops, and public buildings of this open-air museum of Roman life.

Lucretius: The Nature of the Universe

Average Rating:  
Lucretius: The Nature of the Universe
Translated by: G. B. Cobbold
Product Code: 8385
ISBN: 978-0-86516-838-1
Publisher: Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers
Product Format: Paperback / softback
Price:  $12.00

We know almost nothing of the Roman author Lucretius, except that he gave to the world a didactic poem that is the oddest of ducks: a passionate, philosophic/scientific treatise that explains Epicurus's theory of atoms and touts reason and exacting knowledge of the way things are as antidotes to uncertainty and the fear of death. In six books that teeter between celebratory creation and total annihilation, its narrative is driven by pounding logic and determined pedagogical prodding. Studded as it is with vivid stories and meticulous observations of natural phenomena, The Nature of the Universe is an ancient work still able to grab hold of modern readers and not let go. As timely today as it was 2,000 years ago, it proves that the humanities and sciences can inspire and complete one another.

Oedipus of Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Average Rating:  
Oedipus of Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Author: Michael Elliot Rutenberg
Product Code: 4592
ISBN: 978-0-86516-459-8
Pages: 112
Product Format: Paperback
Price:  $15.00

Rutenberg's adaptation of Seneca's Oedipus is the first translation of this Roman tragedy to interpolate excerpts from Seneca's moral philosophies into the text. This juxtaposition of Seneca's calm, rational thought with the passionate, highly theatrical language of his play creates an exciting synergy of powerful emotional and intellectual appeal. Seneca believes that human beings live at the whim of blind chance or divine will. He is interested in how we face a tragedy not of our own making, how we respond to something beyond our control. His central tenet is that we must try to accept suffering with dignity, grace, and mercy. This philosophy is as relevant today, in a world filled with repeated horrors against innocents, as it was in ancient times.
