About this product
- DescriptionThe Roman poet Catullus is one of the most popular and frequently studied ancient authors. His poems were written just over two thousand years ago during the chaotic but culturally vibrant final decades of the Republic and deal with themes of passion and grief, friendship and enmity, politics, literature and myth. This new translation, the product of a collaborative effort between a classicist and a poet, allows modern readers to experience his poems rather as his ancient Roman audience did. The poems are presented as contemporary and concise with a new energy and pace that both enhance Catullus' appeal for n-specialists and challenge specialists to consider his work from a fresh perspective. Extensive tes are provided, as well as an introduction which takes account of modern poetics and popular culture. The translation will appeal t only to classicists but also to lovers of literature in general and poetry in particular.
