Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of texts, translations, commentaries and other works as reference for this book The Rhetoric of Explanation in Lucretius' De rerum natura. Alleged incompatibility of Epicurus' philosophy with rhetoric has led modern scholars to isolate rhetorical procedures in Lucretius' De rerum natura and regard them as non-Epicurean, accessory features. The book is based on a wider understanding of the term rhetoric, not limited to the genre of oratory.

Keywords: Epicurus' philosophy; Lucretius' De rerum natura; rhetorical procedures
