1. The Dedication: to Cornelius
To whom do I send this fresh little book
of wit, just polished off with dry pumice? To you, Cornelius : since you were accustomed to consider my trifles worth something even then, when you alone of Italians dared to explain all the ages, in three learned works, by Jupiter, and with the greatest labour. Then take this little book for your own: whatever it is, and is worth: virgin Muse , patroness, let it last, for more lives than one.
2. Tears for Lesbia’s Sparrow
Sparrow, my sweet girl’s delight,
whom she plays with, holds to her breast, whom, greedy, she gives her little finger to, often provoking you to a sharp bite, whenever my shining desire wishes to play with something she loves, I suppose, while strong passion abates, it might be a small relief from her pain: might I toy with you as she does and ease the cares of a sad mind!

    Come here, nasty words, so many I can hardly
    tell where you all came from.
    That ugly slut thinks I'm a joke
    and refuses to give us back
    the poems, can you believe this shit?
    Lets hunt her down , and demand them back!
    Who is she, you ask? That one, who you see strutting around, with ugly clown lips, laughing like a pesky French poodle. Surround her, ask for them again! "Rotten slut, give my poems back! Give 'em back, rotten slut, the poems!" Doesn't give a shit? Oh, crap. Whorehouse. or if anything's worse, you're it. But I've not had enough thinking about this. If nothing else, lets make that pinched bitch turn red-faced. All together shout, once more, louder: "Rotten slut, give my poems back! Give 'em back, rotten slut, the poems!" But nothing helps, nothing moves her. A change in your methods is cool, if you can get anything more done. "Sweet thing, give my poems back!" adeste hendecasyllabi. quot estis omnes. undique quotquot estis omnes. iocum me putat esse moecha turpis.

    VIVA VOCE ROMAN POETRY RECITED by Vojin Nedeljkovic This selection of readings from classical Latin poetry is intended to be a reconstruction of what the language of the Romans may have sounded like. I have tried to put together what we positively know about phonetic and prosodic features of classical Latin, then work it out in practice as accurately as I could. But the way from knowledge to practice is a long one, and my reconstruction remains conjectural at more than one point. I also wanted this selection to be a sample of major classical metres.

Add to a Notebook Gaius Valerius Catullus Very little is objectively known of the life of Gaius Valerius Catullus. It is believed that he was born in Verona in 84 B.C. to a wealthy and well-connected family. Catullus' father was a friend of Julius Caesar. He died in Rome in 54 B.C. at the age of thirty. From his poems it is known that he went to Bithynia as an aide to the governor of that province in 57-56 B.C. We also know from Cicero that Catullus was one of the "neoteric" or new poets. Whereas the majority of poets in Rome at that time produced epic poems, often commissioned by aristocratic families, Catullus and other neoteric rejected the epic and its public themes. The neoteric poets used colloquial language to write about personal experience. Their poems are mostly smaller lyrics that are characterized by wit and erudition. Aside from these facts, what is known of the life of Catullus comes from the thoughts expressed in his poems. The knowledge of Catullus' poems comes from a single manuscript that survived the Dark Ages. This manuscript was discovered in Verona in around 1305 and disappeared again at the end of the century. Two copies of it, however, were made and one survives in the Bodleian Library in Oxford. The other copy, which was believed to be owned by Petrarch, was also lost. The surviving copy contains 116 poems in three sections: sixty shorter poems written mostly in Greek lyric meters, primarily hendecasyllabic or eleven-syllable lines; eight long poems; and a set of short epigrams.

    12. Ancient Roman Marriage
    An exploration of wedding customs in ancient Greece and Rome as described in the poetry of Sappho and catullus.
    Ancient Roman Marriage
    excitusque hilari die,
    nuptialia concinens
    uoce carmina tinnula,
    pelle humum pedibus, manu
    pineam quate taedam.

    ... and excited for a fortunate day,
    singing wedding songs
    with ringing voice,
    beat the ground with feet, with a hand
    shake the pine torch.1 L ike a Greek woman, a Roman woman was usually under the guardianship, manus, of her paterfamilias, male guardian, her whole life. However, during the end of the Roman Republic and at the time of the elegiac poets, women tended to have more freedom: both in ostensibly factual texts and in imaginative writing a new kind of women appears precisely at the time of Cicero and Caesar: a woman in high position, who nevertheless claims for herself the indulgence in sexuality of a woman of pleasure.2 This 'new woman' both affected and was affected by a new attitude towards marriage, the beginnings of which are seen in Catullus' poems.3 This section will examine the traditional Roman marriage 4and the transition to a different kind of relationship at the time of the elegists. Roman marriages could either be traditional, with coniubium and manus, or unconventional, without coniubium and manus. 5 In order for a marriage and the children resulting from the union to be legitimate, both partners needed to have ius coniubium, the right to marry. This right was both inherent in Roman citizenship and bestowed upon certain people as a special privilege. Under Augustus' laws, if a couple had a sexual union, but did not have coniubium, the union was considered stuprum and the couple was subject to penalties. There were certain unions, however, that allowed people without coniubium to have a marital like union. 6

    Short Curriculum Vitae
    Born in Verona (Gallia Cisalpina) around 82 B.C.
    Father was a friend of Julius Caesar's.
    Falls in love with Clodia, around 60 B.C.
    Brother dies at Troy.
    Joins the staff of Gaius Memmius, Governor of Bithynia, 57-56 B.C.
    No poems datable after 54 B.C., so he may have died sometime around then. Catullus the Roman (From the image collection of Barbara McManus at VRoma) Catullus was a member of the elite, and his family would naturally have cultivated a powerful man like Julius Caesar, who could have advanced their son's career. Catullus mocks the practive of "networking" in Poem 28 : "i, pete nobiles amicos (So much for running after powerful friends!)" And he never treated Caesar with much respect. Catullus did, however, humour his parent's ambitions by taking the standard first step towards a political career. He served for one year on a governor's staff. This satisfied the requirement that all politicians spend time in the army, it was a sort of "internship" in the administration of the empire, and it was a good way to make important connections. But after his year in Bithynia, Catullus pursued his career no further. His interests lay elsewhere. Friendship of Julius Caesar Caesar did not hide the fact that a permanent blot had been put on his name by the verses that Valerius Catullus had made about Mamurra. But when Catullus apologised, Caesar invited him to dinner that very day. And Caesar kept up his old friendship with Catullus' father.
