The Roman Republic poet Lucretius' epic poem 'De Rerum Natura' expounds the scientific theories of Epicurus, with the aim of dispelling fear of the gods and death, enabling man to attain peace of mind and happiness. The great work had a lasting influence on Virgil and the Augustan poets and remains one of the greatest achievements of Latin literature.
