<< Unit 3: Catullan People >>
   

The Catullan corpus boasts a rich array of characters: lovers, poets, pimps, perverts, and politicians.

Among the questions to consider in this unit: To what extent are these characters creations of the poet? What can they tell us about Roman society in Catullus' time? And why is poetry the preferred vehicle for bringing them to life?
