Janice Vitullo
Instructor of Lifelong Learning
Tuesdays, November 8 - December 13
10 - 11:30 a.m. ET

In this class, we will read in translation and discuss the lyric poetry of the Roman poet Catullus. The chief of the Poetae Novi (New Poets), Catullus’ ground-breaking poems on such themes as love and betrayal, friendship, and poking fun at annoying people influenced Horace, Vergil, Propterius, and Ovid, among others. He was witty, serious, funny, learned and sad, and left a legacy that caused his contemporaries and those who followed him to consider him one of the greatest of all Roman poets.
