This edition of eighty poems of Catullus is designed for both university and school use. An introduction deals with the life of Catullus, with his indebtedness to Alexandrian poetry, and with the later history of the poems. The Latin text comes from the Oxford Classical Text of Catullusedited by the late Sir Roger Mynors. The commentary attempts to interpret the poems in the light of modern linguistic and literary scholarship and to assist the student to understand the poet in his environment.
