Read full description of the books:
Catullus has perhaps had the deepest influence of any Latin poet on modern poetry in English; his verses find echoes in lines by American poets from Ezra Pound to Robert Frost. A literary innovator who transformed erotic poetry, epic, and satire in his own time, Catullus speaks to readers today in a voice we recognize as distinctly modern and uniquely accessible.
Charles Martin's masterful translation skillfully conveys the tones and rhythms of the Latin verse while never straying far from its original meaning. Scholars long familiar with the poems will see them here in a new light. Readers encountering them for the first time will discover in Catullus one of the ancient world's most modern voices.
