    Iti`s a bit strange that a reviewer tells Catullus to keep on writing, he`s been dead for over two thousand years... (Report) Reply

    There is a tremendous irony in hail and farewell. The impact of this poem is in the helplessness and hopelessness of anything the Poet can do in the face of his brother's death. He is hailing no one and saying farewell to no one. If the Poet believed in an afterlife there would be consolation, but he does not. All he can do is go through the motions that custom dictates - but nothing can solace his heart for the loss of his brother - we see a raw grief in the measured prosody of the verse. (Report) Reply

    It should be remembered that this touching out pouring of grief was written in a very rigorous form. (Report) Reply

In this dear patience of my pain

Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
