Note "The poems of Catullus barely managed to survive the Middle Ages. All surviving copies of the collection derive from an extremely corrupt manuscript, and scholars have been working since the Renaissance to reconstruct the original text. This volume aims to contribute to this effort with a substantive Introduction, and with six original papers, from a team of noted international specialists. The papers were presented in 2011 at the conference 'What Catullus Wrote' at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. The authors represent different generations of scholarship and different academic traditions. They here study aspects of the manuscript tradition of the poems and their editorial history as well as contributing directly to the reconstruction of the text"--Bookjacket
