The Books of Catullus is a new translation of the Roman poet Catullus which reinvents and reimagines his poetry for the contemporary age. It is the first version to divide Catullus's complete works into the three 'books' believed by many scholars to be how the text was originally received in the Late Republic (c.60 B.C.). The length of each 'book, ' or grouping correlates to the usual length of a single piece of papyrus from that period. These 'books' are gatherings of poems in different metres, and concentrate on various themes, including love, sex, friendship and marriage with some poems written in elegiac couplets.
