Product description

In these translated poems, David Mulroy aims to bring to life the witty, poignant and brutally direct voice of a flesh-and-blood man, a young provincial in Julius Caesar's Rome, reacting to real people and events in a city full of violent conflict among individuals marked by genius and megalomaniacal passions. These translations are accompanied by: an introduction and commentary that provide biographical and bibliographical information about Catullus; a history of his times; a discussion of the translations; and definitions and notes.

Review quote

"Mulroy's is a marvelous contribution to Catullus translations and studies. Catullus' angry or comic (sometimes both) poems directed at the movers and shakers of his era are rendered here with wit and Roman realism, and the famous love poems to Lesbia are charming and immediate." Kelly Cherry, author of "Rising Venus: Poems""
