About the Author:

Gaius Valerius Catullus (ca. 84 BC ca. 54 BC) was one of the most influential Roman poets of the 1st century BC. His work is still widely studied, and his perennial influence continues to be seen in poetry and other forms of art.
Guy Lee is a Fellow at St John's College, Cambridge.

Review:

`The best current translator of Latin poetry, Guy Lee, has now turned his attention to "The Poems of Catullus" ... this is yet another distinguished version from Lee's pen which deserves to become the standard version both for those with Latin and those studying Catullus in translation, and
its author deserves hearty congratulations.'
Greece and Rome

'the work of a consummate Latinist ... with a desire to communicate something of the elegance and verbal flair of his original, a matter close to L.'s heart as the crisp introduction makes plain ... a very persuasive book'
Roland Mayer, King's College, London, The Classical Review, Vol. XLIII, No. 2, 1993
