Editorial Reviews


'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

'The book deserves to become required reading for all students of late-republican Rome, its society and its literature.' Tony Woodman, British Book News

Format: Paperback
This book tells you most everything that can be known or guessed about Catullus, and it does so in a way that is both erudite and entertaining--a rare combination.
