    1. Intense, intense, intense I was enthralled by this novel of the life of Catullus, the Roman lyric poet during the ten years he lived in Rome Immediately upon closing the book in 2014 I reread it.My December 2015 rereading really brought home the artificiality and purpleness of the prose, which really had impressed me the first time, but got annoying this time This is one of the few times I have downgraded a book.After the poet s sad life of barely thirty years, his good friend Marcus Caelius Ruf [...]


    2. I think I d give this 4.5 stars rather than 5, because Steven Saylor s The Venus Throw is still for me the best and most realistic depiction of the Catullus Clodia relationship and everything that came between them most especially in how it unpacks the gender and power elements of Catullan love elegy, and the way in which it makes Clodia the lover of her brother and Caelius without ever judging her , and also I find Clodia s presence at the mysteries of Cybele highly unlikely, but I loved this I [...]


    3. The Key by Benito Kane Jaro is a novel I really wanted to love A friend whose acumen I respect had effused over it There are things in it I admire, but can only give it two stars.Ms Jaro writes well and I have marked a dozen paragraphs that are so perfect in their harmonies and counterpoint that they arise to the level of genius I will type those paragraphs out that I might study carefully how she crafted them.However, the book is unconvincing as a narrative and rather tedious Its strongest aspe [...]


    4.

    5. I got about half way through this book and I just couldn t finish it It is not at all how I picture the character of Catullus after reading his poetry Also, I found the writing very disorganized and disjointed.
