Product Description

Review

"This volume is strongly recommended to scholars and teachers for its sound exposition of a given Catullan problem and as a point of departure for any student starting out to explore the Catullan oeuvre." ( Sjarlene Thom , 2009) "This Companion will be the best of companions to young Catullus scholars, as a strong starting point for work on the most important questions in Catullan studies." ( New England Classical Journal , February 2009) "This Companion will be the best of companions to young Catullus scholars, as a strong starting point for work on the most important questions in Catullan studies." ( New England Classical Journal , February 2009) "The volume′s 27 essays are the work of a team of internationally renowned scholars.... It deserves a place in both the libraries of academic institutions as well as the well–stocked public library." ( Reference Reviews , Issue 7 2008) "Abounds with scholarship of a high order, state–of–the–art literary history and criticism, and, not least, solid practical advice for readers and instructors." ( Choice ) "This reviewer recommends the book without reservation not only to the Catullus specialist, but also and especially to all classicists and teachers." ( Scholia Reviews ) "Offers modern youth a direct hotline with an ancient author." ( Journal of Classics Teaching ) "It is a strong volume, to which the student meeting Catullus for the first time and the highly experienced reader can be sent with confidence." ( Bryn Mawr Classical Review )

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER on 14 Mar 2008
Format: Hardcover
Blackwell have certainly been churning out these 'companions' to the classical world over the last year or so and the quality varies immednsely. This, to me, is one of the better ones. Edited by Marilyn Skinner, this is an excellent anthology of modern scholarship on Catullus. Starting with the transmission of the text and debates about the ordering of the poems, it goes on to discuss issues of gender, genre, performativity, obscene invective etc, with detailed bibliographies on individual chapters. While ostensibly aimed at the school and undergraduate student, it's an excellent overview of the current literature with pointers on where to deepen your research.
