Transcript of Lucretius: On the Atom and Swerve

The Life of Lucretius Lucretius lived from approximately 99B.C. to 55B.C
He wrote Latin poetry (One is Called De Rerum Natura).
We believe he was a roman aristocrat.
Lucretius died from suicide (according to the only source: a medieval chronicler named Jerome).
