This article examines the translation of Lucretius in 19th century Spain. Lucretius' poems are abundant with doctrine, namely the philosophical system of Epicurus and there is a substantial confrontation between the emergent liberalism in 19th century Spain, associated with Lucretius and absolutism, personified by the monarch Fernando VII.
