Example text

Taken as a first example of Catullus’s poetry, c. 6 presents certain complications. 1 Catullus asks about the details of a friend’s morning- after bedroom; since the friend does not open up, Catullus happily infers. In his own poetic speech he does not mince words. C. 6’s main complication would seem to be, then, that it violates propriety or decorum. 2 For just this reason, however, c. 6 is important for our purposes. The poem concerns itself with the difference between what is said and what is kept silent.

We will consider this possibility in greater detail poem by poem. In any case, we have here a clear example of the poem’s, and Catullus’s, interest in modalities of speech, as what can be said overlaps with what will, as both are proposed to take the place of what is not said otherwise.

As we have seen, this interaction consists most overtly in attention to sense- perceptible objects including others’ bodies: most obviously, of course, Flavius’s and the girlfriend’s, about whom just a bit more later in this discussion.
