Poems of Catullus

From Publishers Weekly
Feel free to refer anyone who thinks rappers' or stand-up comics' abundant use of obscenities is a recent cultural phenomenon to the work of Catullus, especially Green's translation. Writing in the first-century B.C.E., the infamous Latin poet could turn quite the vulgar phrase when insulting his enemies or boasting about his sexual prowess. (Witnesseth: "Ameana, that fucked-out little scrubber...") Green's translations treat the bawdy ("Rotten slut, give back the writing tablets!") and the romantic ("Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred....") with equal care. With a lengthy introduction that explains his approach to the poems, copious notes on each translation and a glossary in case you've forgotten who Phaëthon was, Green has aimed this volume at Latin novices, poetry lovers and fellow classicists....

Review
'... there are some very fine close readings ...'. Journal of Roman Studies
'... a sensitive study of an amazing poet, certainly careful and courteous in its chosen methodology, distinguished by its wide reading among fashionable critics and by the receptive eye it opens to many (not all) facets of the Catullan jewel. This is a careful book, deserving attention'. Latomus

Review
"Because of the technical nature of the language and ideas, this text is clearly aimed at graduate students and scholars in the field of Latin poetry and comparative literature." Religious Studies Review

From Library Journal
This is among the best of modern translations of Catullus. It is responsive to the diversity of Catullan meters and captures his swing from the voice of impassioned lover to that of abusive reviler, from the language of refinement and learning to that of a man-about-town conversant with street gutterese. The poems in this translation hold together well as a unified oeuvre while conveying with remarkable success Catullus's wit, elegantly controlled passion, and intermixture of contemporary Roman scenes and vast mythological landscapes.- Stephen Scully, Boston Univ.Copyright 1990 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Catullus and His Renaissance Readers
Julia H. Gaisser
0198148828
Apr 1993
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This is the first general study of the fortunes of Catullus in the Renaissance. After a brief introduction tracing the transmission of the poet from antiquity to the middle of the fifteenth century, the book follows his reception and interpretation by editors, commentators, university
lecturers, and poets from the first edition (1472) through the sixteenth century. The focus is on Catullus but also on his Renaissance readers. Their text and interpretations not only influenced the ways in which later generations (including our own) would read the poet, but also provide windows
into their own intellectual and historical worlds, which include Poliziano's Florence, Rome under the Medici Pope Leo X and his puritanical successor Adrian VI, the Paris of Ronsard and Marc-Antoine de Muret, post-Tridentine Rome, and...

Review
'T. P. Wiseman's Catullus and his World must be one of the most readable and exciting new books about a Latin poet for many years ... [It] can confidently be recommended to anyone interested in Catullus and not just to the professional classical scholar or student.' Francis Cairns, The Times Literary Supplement
'Disarmingly readable, and with many a neat turn of phrase, it is a valuable study of Catullus and his time, full of shrewdness and common sense, sometimes subtle, sometimes provocative.' Richard Jenkyns, The Times Higher Education Supplement
'I applaud the book as a scintillating work of imaginative scholarship.' Peter Jones, The Times

Cicero, Catullus, and the Language of Social Performance
Brian A. Krostenko
0226454436
Feb 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Charm, wit, and style were critical, but dangerous, ingredients in the social repertoire of the Roman elite. Their use drew special attention, but also exposed one to potential ridicule or rejection for valuing style over substance. Brian A. Krostenko explores the complexities and ambiguities of charm, wit, and style in Roman literature of the late Republic by tracking the origins, development, and use of the terms that described them, which he calls "the language of social performance."

As Krostenko demonstrates, a key feature of this language is its capacity to express both approval and disdain--an artifact of its origins at a time when the "style" and "charm" of imported Greek cultural practices were greeted with both enthusiasm and hostility. Cicero played on that ambiguity, for example, by chastising...
