Review by: Hilton Turner, Westminster College - September 27, 2005
This offering of 17 selections, mostly, but not all, Lesbia poems, is designed to make Catullus available to students ‘at the earliest feasible stage.’ To this end Professor Kaiser provides a generous reference to older English poetry written under Catullus’ influence, and a variety of quotations, including a dozen or so poetic selections, intended to document the literary merit and influence of Catullus.
