Título: Catullus: A Textual Reappraisal (Hardback)
Editorial: Classical Press of Wales, United Kingdom
Año de publicación: 2007
Condición del libro: New
The poems of Catullus have notoriously been subjected to numerous accidental corruptions. This work represents a radical reappraisal of his text. It recommends some 600 changes to the Oxford Text of R.A.B. Mynors; many of these proposals are easily accessible elsewhere, but many are either original or else more or less forgotten. It is suggested here that Catullus's text was also subjected to significant deliberate change, much of it probably dating back to classical antiquity. These changes consist in part of around 70 interpolated lines, often designed to explain or paraphrase what Catullus had written, and in part of modernisations designed to adapt a Republican poet, the near contemporary of Cicero and Lucretius, to the poetical norms of the early Empire. Students of Catullus will certainly wish to take account of the arguments here advanced, even where they find themselves in disagreement with the conclusions.About the Author:
John Trappes-Lomax, formerly Senior Scholar of Gonville and Caius College Cambridge, specialises in the textual criticism and interpretation of Latin poetry. In this field he has published numerous articles in Classical Quarterly, Mnemosyne, Phoenix and Proceedings of the Cambridge Philological Association.
