Could a book change the world? In Greenblatt’s illuminating study of the Renaissance, the answer is yes, and the book is On the Nature of Things by the Roman philosopher Lucretius. Greenblatt, a Harvard Shakespeare scholar and author of the bestselling Will in the World, presents Lucretius’s ideas, shows whom they impressed and why, and demonstrates their pivotal and ongoing influence.
