Latin Poetry

Catullus on the Web

This page has been terribly neglected for the past few months, and I apologize to everyone who has written me and not received a reply. I intend to spend more time on this page within the next few weeks adding everything that I've promised, including, perhaps, sound files of the poems listed here being read in meter.

Project:

This site intends to offer a medium for critical essays and creative interpretations of the poetry written by C. Valerius Catullus. In the near future, I intend to include some of the original poetry, a few translations (most likely my own), notes on meter, some biographical data, and a few short essays.

Most importantly, I am seeking scholarship in the form of electronic submissions which I will store for the entire world to read. Although all submissions are welcome and appreciated, my highest hope for this project is to collect and display a small body of academic works from younger scholars.

Please mail me with any questions or comments. Thank you.
