Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this edition of Catullus's poetry, Lee provides a new, reliable text for the scholar and a facing page translation--as faithful to the Latin as possible--for students and the general reader. In addition to a wide selection of Catallus's lyrics, epigrams, themes from romantic legends, and a set of poems dedicated to his lover Lesbia, the book includes a full introduction, explanatory notes to the text and translation, a chronology, and brief bibliography.

Synopsis:

Of all Greek and Latin poets Catullus is perhaps the most accessible to the modern reader. Dealing candidly with the basic human emotions of love and hate, his virile, personal tone exerts a powerful appeal on all kinds of readers. The 116 poems collected in this new translation include the

famous Lesbia poems and display the full range of Catullus's mastery of lyric meter, mythological themes, and epigrammatic invective and wit.
