Catullus. Modern bust of Catullus on the Piazza Carducci in Sirmione. Gaius Valerius Catullus ( kə-TUL-əs, Latin: [kaˈtʊllʊs]; c. 84 – c. 54 BCE) was a Latin poet of the late Roman Republic who wrote chiefly in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes.
His surviving works are still read widely and continue to influence poetry and other forms of art. Catullus's poems were widely appreciated by other poets, significantly influencing Ovid and Virgil, among others. After his rediscovery in the Late Middle Ages, Catullus again found admirers.
