List of bibliographies of works on Catullus

Source From Wikipedia English.

Gaius Valerius Catullus (c. 84c. 54 BCE) was a Latin poet and a leading figure of the Neoterics. Catullus and his poetry, comprising 113 poems,⁠ have been the subjects of many books and papers in classical studies and other fields, including literary criticism, gender studies, and cultural studies; there are many critical editions, commentaries, translations and student guides of his poetry as well. Even in 1890, Max Bonnet wrote that Catullus was "inundated" with academic publications concerning his life and works. In the early 1970s, Kenneth Quinn wrote, "Scarcely an issue appears of any of the major classical periodicals without at least one article on Catullus; new translations come out almost yearly". More than two thousand publications about Catullus appeared between 1959 and 2003. Denis Feeney has described Catullus 68 alone as having "legions of critics", producing a "labyrinth" of literature. The main bibliographic reference for classical studies is L'Année philologique, a journal founded by Jules Marouzeau; each volume contains a list of works published on Catullus that year. However, expert guidance via specific bibliographies and survey articles remains useful as this index can be inconvenient to use. Curated bibliographies are still important resources even with the rise of online search tools such as Google Scholar. Various bibliographies and literature reviews have attempted to systematically cover books, chapters, articles, dissertations, and other research about Catullus and his poetry to help students and scholars find their way through the literature.

A library bookshelf containing several books on Catullus. Titles include: "Catullus: An Interpretation", "Style and Tradition in Catullus", and "The Lyric Genius of Catullus".
Bibliographies are helpful tools to identify books about Catullus.

Conrad Bursian's Jahresbericht über die Fortschritte der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft [s:de] was a journal known for its articles reviewing work on classical authors or topics; German classicists such as Richard Richter [de], Hugo Magnus [de], and Hans Rubenbauer [de] contributed several surveys of Catullan studies over the course of the journal's publication in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. R. G. C. Levens's chapter "Catullus" in Fifty Years of Classical Scholarship and Jean Granarolo's article "Où en sont nos connaissances sur Catulle?" in L'Information littéraire both overviewed the state of Catullan scholarship up through the 1950s, prior to R. A. B. Mynors's influential edition for Oxford Classical Texts. The 1958 publication of Mynors's text marked the start of a resurgence of scholarship of Catullus continuing through 1970. The period 1934–1969 in Catullan research is covered by a pair of articles in The Classical World; this journal is known for its bibliographic reports. Quinn's "Trends in Catullan Criticism" was published in the book series Aufstieg und Niedergang der römischen Welt in 1973; this series mostly comprises survey articles, with many devoted to reviews of scholarship on Roman authors. Lustrum, a review journal devoted to comprehensive surveys of classical scholarship, published surveys by Granarolo in 1976 and 1987. The 1970s and 1980s also marked the appearance of two bibliographic books on Catullus: one by Hermann Harrauer [de] in 1979 and another by James P. Holoka in 1985. Marilyn B. Skinner's 270-page article for Lustrum covers 1985–2015, picking up from Granarolo's earlier publications for the journal; T. P. Wiseman included Skinner's survey as one of a handful of "standard works of Catullan reference". Several Catullan bibliographies exist online; these online resources can be continually updated unlike those in print. David Konstan, a compiler of Oxford Bibliographies Online's bibliography of Catullus, wrote "in the future, online bibliographies [...] will be the rule".

Various kinds of references have been included alongside self-contained bibliographies and research reports on Catullus. Some bibliographies are on related subjects such as Lesbia (a major character in many of Catullus's poems, generally thought to be a pseudonym for Clodia) or the Codex Traguriensis (a 15th century manuscript in the Bibliothèque nationale de France containing Catullus's poetry); others are on broader topics such as Roman elegy, meter, or Latin literature as a whole. Certain books on Catullus have had their references identified as being particularly useful from a bibliographic point of view. Tertiary sources such as Mauriz Schuster [de]'s entry in Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft also have been cited for their review of past scholarship. Items are added to this list only if other sources have specifically cited them within broader metabibliographic discussion of bibliographies and research surveys of Catullus.
