Metadata[+] Show full item record
Text from Introduction: The method of procedure in this study of Catullus has been to examine each of the worlds above mentioned with a view to discovering their impression upon the poet. It was found that he views nature in six separate and distinct ways. They are: 1. The close photographic view. 2. The scientific versus the mythological point of view. 3. The view of simple unreflective delight. 4. The association with scenes. 5. The view of the infinite side of nature. 6. The using of nature as a means of illustrating human life.
