“Oiga don Rubén, es que usted no es de este mundo. Yo creo que usted es extraterrestre”. Así se expresó Bulmaro Reyes, profesor de gramática de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, sobre Rubén Bonifaz Nuño. El poeta mexicano tradujo De la natura de las cosas, obra de Lucrecio reeditada y presentada en el contexto de la XXXV Feria Internacional del Palacio de Minería. Al evento también asistió Fernando Macotela, director de la FILPM.

“Cuando yo le decía eso a don Rubén, él nada más se reía. Yo pienso que sí era extraterrestre y por eso se reía”, bromeó el profesor con más de tres décadas de experiencia.

Fue el Lic. Fernando Macotela quien tuvo la idea de la reedición de la obra de Lucrecio. El director de la FLPM contó que, hace dos o tres años, leyó una novela de Anatole France contextualizada en la época del terror en Francia. Un personaje de esta novela tenía un libro de Lucrecio y siempre lo leía: De la natura de las cosas. A raíz de tal lectura a Fernando Macotela lo invadió la curiosidad por acercarse al autor latino. Sin embargo, la obra, que había sido traducida por Rubén Bonifaz Nuño y publicada por la UNAM hace más de 30 años, estaba agotada.

Fernando Macotela le sugirió a Bulmaro Reyes que gestionara la reedición de la obra de Lucrecio: “Bulmaro se movió y en un tiempo récord, ningún libro de la UNAM había sido reeditado tan pronto, logró con su amor que el trabajo se reeditara”.

El libro encierra una doble dificultad, explicó Bulmaro Reyes, “la dificultad de enfrentarse a dos gigantes: Rubén Bonifaz Nuño y Lucrecio”, a quienes calificó como dos contemporáneos del mundo por su pensamiento. “Don Rubén es del mismo tamaño que Lucrecio, Lucrecio es del mismo tamaño que Rubén”, sentenció el latinista.

Fernando Macotela se tomó el tiempo para leer unas cuentas líneas del libro. En la página X, explicó el director de la FILPM, Rubén Bonifaz sintetiza el contenido de la obra: “por una parte, llegar al conocimiento exacto y cabal del mundo físico; por otra, apoderarse de la idea salvadora de la sabiduría como un bien accesible, suficiente a vencer los males mayores. Tal es la poderosa ambición que consuma sus fines en la obra de Lucrecio”.

Bulmaro Reyes subrayó que es posible que Cicerón conociera a Lucrecio. De hecho, “es posible que Marco Tulio Cicerón haya sido el corrector, el editor, de Lucrecio”. Además, sostuvo que lo que pretende enseñarnos Lucrecio es que la religión es una estupidez, un estorbo, “porque el más grande estorbo del hombre está en el temor”.

Para finalizar, Fernando Macotela puntualizó al público que, “después de haber escuchado a Bulmaro, ya saben el tamaño de mi gratitud con él por haber hecho la labor de gestión de la reedición del libro y por acompañarnos hoy”.
