Amazing to found myself so immersed in Catullus' world 2000 years after he lived and wrote. We are fortunate that a single copy of his poetry was discovered in the 13th century, thus allowing Catullus' poetry to live on through the Ages. Fortunate also that Ms. Dunn brings his world and work so much to life; she nicely teases out his life story, citing the clues borne in his writing and that of contemporaries.
Very well delivered by Mike Grady whose rich tones enhance the poetry extracts; the final reading in full of Catullus' poem 64 is both rewarding and moving.
I do complain however that the physical book comes with maps, notes and illustrations; I feel Audible should contrive to make these available to purchasers of audiobooks too.
Anyway, highly recommended if you have a penchant for the Classical world - plus if you ever go to Verona (via Catullus Airport!) you'll all the more appreciate a trip to Lake Garda and Sirmione.
