Although Catullus is one of the best known of the Roman poets it is his shorter poems that are more familiar. This is the first edition of the long poems of Catullus in a single volume which with the companion edition by John Godwin of the shorter poems completes all Catullus' surviving work. This edition aims to describe and discuss recent scholarship on the poems, seeing them in their context and intertext as fully as possible. Latin text with facing-page translation, introduction and commentary.
John Godwin is the Head of Classics at Shrewsbury School. He has written six books in the field of Roman Poetry and edited the complete works of Catullus in two volumes.
