by

The Poems of Catullus Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection contains all of Catullus's extant work. Ranging from the tender, moving, and passionate to the vicious and even obscene, these are poems of astonishingly modern force and content. The lively translation by Peter Whigham re-creates the dexterity, passion, and perception of the original.

Synopsis:

Catullus, best remembered for his tempestuous relationship with the notorious Clodia Metelli, was one of the most influential, original and enigmatic of all the Roman poets. This text presents a collection of his work.

About the Author
