About this product
- DescriptionCatullus' poetry is by turns ribald, lyric, romantic, satirical; it offers us vivid pictures of the poet's friends, enemies, and lovers. This work is a bilingual translation of Catullus' poems. It provides an essay on the poet's life and literary background, and a historical sketch of the politically fraught late Roman Republic in which he lived.
