    Praise for Simon Smith  'Smith manages to keep the balance between being timeless and being modern, so that these poems come to life, seem immediately relevant'
    Tina Röck, DURA
    'These new translations of Catullus reveal to us two poets at work and the correspondence between the two opens up a freshness of speech which is a delight to hear.'
    Ian Brinton, Tears in the Fence
     'Here is a poet entirely in sympathy with Catullus and concerned to represent his poems as faithfully as possible, opened to the contemporary reader.'
    Peter Riley, The Fortnightly Review
