Catullus through his books: dramas of composition In other words, it’s not necessary to pick out and re-order the poems about Lesbia to construct the story of the love affair, as so many readers have done, for example Quinn, who says “the order of the [Lesbia] poems is clearly not chronological (so that we can never do more than guess.

And, of course, Catullus, unlike Sappho, says the girl’s name: Lesbia. Readers of Catullus will recognize the married noblewoman (probably Clodia Metelli) with whom the poet had a brief and stormy affair: short-lived rapture followed by long bitterness and recrimination.

Catullus (cc54 BC) wrote some of the most sublime poetry in the late Roman Republic, and some of the most obscene. He found a new way to write about love, in poems to the mysterious Lesbia, married and elusive, and he influenced Virgil and Ovid and others, yet his explicit poems were to blight his reputation for a thousand years.

Catullus finishes the poem by comparing himself to a flower that has been dropped and killed by a plow. It seems as if his love has angered him by having sex with at least one other man. Catullus has filled his poem with hyperbole, as it is doubtful that Lesbia is with men at one time.

Catullus describes his Lesbia as having multiple suitors and often showing little affection towards him.

He also demonstrates a great sense of humour such as in Catullus Musical settings. Catullus Dreams () is a song cycle by David Glaser set to texts of Catullus.

The cycle is scored for soprano and seven instruments. However, from the evidence of those 'fixed star' poems, Catullus must have still been alive in 58 BC with at least three or four years to go.

Thus Eusebius/Jerome's death date of 58 BC for Catullus must be wrong. Catullus XXX aetatis suae anno Romae moritur, 'Catullus dies at Rome in the 30th year of his life'. Ibid, folio r. Catullus is a companion of lovers and of those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter.

Carmina captures in English both the mordant, scathing wit and also the concise tenderness, the famous love for reluctant Lesbia who is made present in these new versions/5.
