The fragments of Empedocles. Translated into English verse by William Ellergy Leonard.

Monist, 17, 451-74, 1907.

Empedocles was a Greek philosopher, statesman, physician and reformer. His poem on Nature originally ran to 5,000 lines, of which only 400 are now left. He believed in four ultimate elements—fire, air, water and earth, these being brought into union and parted by the two powers, love and hate.
