"In sum, an uneven collection (as would be and are most volumes of this sort), but this reader readily concurs with the judgment in the prefatory statement to this volume by Charles Segal - itself a model of how to phrase cautiously-restrained enthusiasm: there is something rewarding for every interested reader in each of these papers."

The beginnings of lyric poetry among the Romans reach back to the prehistoric period of the city, and were as rude and shapeless as was the life of her people. Amid the rough farmer-populace of the turf-walled village by the Tiber the Arval Brethren and the Salii chanted their rude litanies to the rustic deities, -for even then religion was a prime cause in moving men toward poetry.

classic commentaries on Latin classics : R.G Austin on Cicero and Virgil, C.J. Fordyce on Catullus, R.G. and R.G.M. Nisbet on Cicero

The series of classic commentaries on the most important Latin texts, published by Oxford University Press between 1933 and 1976, remain extremely influential textbooks wherever Classics is taught to English speakers: in verse, R.G. Austin on four books of Virgil's Aeneid and C.J. Fordyce on Catullus; in prose, Austin on Cicero's Pro Caelio, R.G. Nisbet on Cicero's De Domo and R.G.M. Nisbet on Cicero's In Pisonem. The maroon boards used for these books gave them the impact of a 'series', and they provided a model for editions of Latin authors in the post-war expanding UK university system. Here John Henderson uncovers the individual and often surprising stories behind these publications, and brings out the personalities and negotiations that shaped them.

Concatenatio Catulliana

Author: Paul Claes

ISBN: N.A

The arrangement of Catullus' Carmina is one of those controversial issues that in-cite respectable commentators to take up extreme positions. In 1914, the German scholar Bernhard Schmidt described the collection as 'a wild chaos'. Forty-five years later, his compatriot Otto Weinreich riposted with the laconic statement: 'Chaos? Cosmos!' Former attempts to detect a structure in the collection were based on rather subjective assumptions. While translating Catullus' poetry into Dutch, Dr Claes detected an objective foundation: the principle of concatenation, i.e. the recurrence of motifs and phrases in consecutive poems. The generality of this phenomenon proves that the poet conceived of the Carmina as a coherent collection, in which the poems fit like links in a chain. The discovery of this coherence suggests a new reading of Catullus, which has also implications for the constitution of the text.
