I felt the book The Swerve was 1/3 too long. After More/Erasmus the connection wasn't close enough, and I felt the author was fishing for a way to make Lucretius relatable to contemporary folks.

Lucretius is too busy licking Epicurus' ass to come up with anything original...

My "fancy" book club read some letter by Epicurus meant to summarize his teachings. Later we read what we could of Philodemus. Everyone liked Lucretius better.

So I was reading some Epicurus today... I now remember why I generally stick to the poets and historical account.... and stay away from philosophy...
