Hello, all of you.

I am a banker from eastern Wyoming who has to write an essay relating Catullus' poem 76 to the rest of his poems; specifically 11, 8, 79, 109, 87, 70, 72, 85, 5, 86, 3, 2, and 51. Does anyone have any ideas? And I hate it when people think poem 69 is so hilariously funny; it's really cruel. I would never lend money to anyone that mean. Well, I must away. Bye. (!)

Well. One underlying theme that comes through all his poems to do with Lesbia is his obsession with fairness and accounting, which leads me to believe his family did banking. He talks about contracts (foedus), counting, keeping accounts, and getting screwed in a deal (semi-literally).
If you're serious about writing an essay, I'd read about half a dozen different translations at least.

Line 14 "difficile est, verum hoc qualubet eficias" should read "difficile est, verum hoc qua lubet efficias".
