Swerve, The How the Renaissance Began
Stephen Greenblatt

Paperback $19.99 - Random House UK
History - Published: 18/Sep/2012 - ISBN: 9780099572442

Nearly six hundred years ago the last surviving manuscript of an ancient Roman philosophical epic, Lucretius’ On the Nature of Things, by was found on a library shelf. In this innovative history Greenblatt explores how the copying and translation of this ancient book fuelled the Renaissance, shaped the thought of Galileo, Freud, Darwin and Einstein, and influenced writers from Montaigne to Thomas Jefferson.
