Lucretius:  epicurean and poet  1907

An excerpt from the book preface:
It was impossible either to discuss in the former volume all the Epicurean doctrines referred to by Lucretius or to give all the evidence for the conclusions I have stated, these being based upon texts some of which are very intricate and difficult. In certain cases, a choice had to be made as to points to be left over to the Appendix. Perhaps one or two of these might have been treated more appropriately in the book itself if space had allowed. 1 I am deeply conscious of the extreme difficulty of the subject and have gratefully to acknowledge the value of several criticisms from which I hope the book may one day profit. The main point as to which critics have differed from 1 I may mention here the attack (it cannot be called ' criticism ') on my book in the Times (January 16, 1908). The writer condemns it on the ground of minor omissions, which he magnifies as if they were central points. At the same time, he entirely omits to mention that in the Preface and elsewhere an ' Appendix,' or supplementary volume, is frequently referred to for subjects which there was no space to treat in full. The critic, who is of the extreme academic type, does not attempt to grasp the real ' content ' of the book, while in his remarks upon Epcureanism he is satisfied to deal with its merest surface. But, apart from this total difference of standpoint, his criticisms cover only a small portion of the matters dealt with. Notably, he avoids the greater doctrines. While emphasizing details, he does not even name central and capital Epicurean tenets, treated at length in chapters which embody much fresh research. I refer, for example, to atomic Declination and Epicurus's theology, certainly the most difficult and among the most distinctive of his doctrines.
