The poetry of Catullus often has an immediate appeal to contemporary readers. In Tom Stoppard's play THE INVENTION OF LOVE, the claim is made that he invented love as we think of it. But in addition to his love poetry, Catullus is also the writer of a mini-mythological epic (an epyllion), an account of the strange story of the self-castration of Attis, wedding hymns, translations from Greek lyric, invective, and elegy. In this course, we will read an extensive selection of Catullus' poetry and discuss the critical issues they raise in the light of selected readings from modern scholarship.
