Online Launch ‘Catullus: Selected Lyric Poems’

Join us for the launch of a new translation of selected lyric poems from Catullus by Richard Whitaker and Douglas Reid Skinner. The event will be held via Microsoft Teams on 20th October 2020 from 17h00 to 18h30 (SAST).

From the publisher’s website: ‘This selection of poems from his small extant body of work aims to show how – whether he composes a tender love lyric to his mis­tress or a boyfriend, an abusive attack on a politician or literary rival, an address to an intimate friend, a vitriolic or obscene satire, or an occasional piece on some small incident of social life – Catullus is deeply engaged with his subject, a writer passionate about his craft, and fully in touch with the centuries of Greek and Roman poetry that came before him.’
