3 Segal, Charles LUCRETIUS ON DEATH AND ANXIETY Poetry and Philosophy in De Rerum Natura
Princeton University Press 1990 0691068267 / 9780691068268 Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). Else book is fine. DJ has very faint shelfwear. ; In a fresh interpretation of Lucretius's On the Nature of Things, Charles Segal reveals this great poetical account of Epicurean philosophy as an important and profound document for the history of Western attitudes toward death. He shows that this poem, aimed at promoting spiritual tranquillity, confronts two anxieties about death not addressed in Epicurus's abstract treatment--the fear of the process of dying and the fear of nothingness. Lucretius, Segal argues, deals more specifically with the body in dying because he draws on the Roman concern with corporeality as well as on the rich traditions of epic and tragic poetry on mortality. ; Princeton Legacy Library; 291 pages

Cornell University Press 1994 0801487269 / 9780801487262 Softcover Near Fine with no dust jacket 
Tiny black dot to front wrap else fine. ; One of the special charms of the Odyssey, according to Charles Segal, is the way it transports readers to fascinating places. Yet despite the appeal of its narrative, the Odyssey is fully understood only when its style, design, and mythical patterns are taken into account as well. Bringing a new richness to interpretation of this epic, Segal looks closely at key forms of social and personal organization which Odysseus encounters in his voyages. Segal also considers such topics as the relationship between bard and audience, the implications of the Odyssey's self-consciousness about its own poetics, and Homer's treatment of the nature of poetry. ; Myth and Poetics; 0.88 x 9.35 x 6.28 Inches; 244 pages
