LITERATURE: Lucretius or Augustine?

Both are on my reading list, both are not the easiest reading, both are available online to start out while I await delivery if ordered.

What I’m concerned with here is that my mind is not up to the task of full comprehension right now.  Witness Barthes’ S/Z that I tried so desperately to understand and thought I’d gotten the idea of the message and yet can’t face more than a page or two at a time.  Until certain things are cleared out of my life, my obsessive nature maintains them at the forefront and it’s difficult to operate under those conditions of rain-bearing clouds that even at best, fog the vision.

So one or the other shall be next up on my philosophy study: On the Nature of Things or Confessions.
