Acre - JW Swift - A Short Summary & Review

The Swerve: How The World Became Modern - Stephen Greenblatt - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Swerve:

How Poggio Bracciolini re-discovered Lucretius work "On The Nature Of Things"

My favorite quote from Lucretius:

"There is nothing that exists so great or marvelous that over time mankind does not admire it less and less."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How much do you know about the beginning of the Renaissance?

Have you ever wondered how much knowledge we lost?

My review of The Swerve:

A great theory about the catalyst of the Renaissance.

Well-researched and logically laid out.

Easy to read, despite the complexity of the topic.
