Dirty Mondays: Catullus 16

Brought to mind by a recent court case, and with thanks to Julian atSybawrite, Bookkake’s Dirty Monday Poem returns for a special one-off.
“City boss denies lewd latin claim” goes the BBC headline, but it’s hard to deny your intentions when the latin in question was “irrumabo vos et pedicabo vos”. “The phrase threatens a violent sex act” says the BBC coyly, but any serious classicist knows it’s a lot more fun than that. It is of course the first (and last) line of the sixteenth of Catullus’ Carmina, the “angry love poems”, in which he furiously attacks those who disparage his work. It is also a long time favourite of the more easily amused scholar – among whom we happily count ourselves.
A literal translation is supplied below, and you’ll probably appreciateWikipedia’s notes on the language too.
Catullus 16
I will bugger you and face-fuck you.Cock-sucker Aurelius and catamite Furius,You who think, because my versesAre delicate, that I am a sissy.For it’s right for the devoted poet to be chasteHimself, but it’s not necessary for his verses to be so.Verses which then have taste and charm,If they are delicate and sexy,And can incite an itch,And I don’t mean in boys, but in those hairy old menWho can’t get their flaccid dicks up.You, because you have read of my thousand kisses,You think I’m a sissy?I will bugger you and face-fuck you.

    Catullus 16

    I will bugger you and face-fuck you.
    Cock-sucker Aurelius and catamite Furius,
    You who think, because my verses
    Are delicate, that I am a sissy.
    For it’s right for the devoted poet to be chaste
    Himself, but it’s not necessary for his verses to be so.
    Verses which then have taste and charm,
    If they are delicate and sexy,
    And can incite an itch,
    And I don’t mean in boys, but in those hairy old men
    Who can’t get their flaccid dicks up.
    You, because you have read of my thousand kisses,
    You think I’m a sissy?
    I will bugger you and face-fuck you.

    "Times are bad. Children no longer obey their parents and everyone is writing a book."

    Cicero, circa 43 BC (via amandaonwriting)

    “The recency illusion is the belief or impression that something is of recent origin when it is in fact long-established.”

The Iron Throne as described in the novels, officially endorsed by GRRM on his blog as the most accurate artistic representation thus far. By artist Marc Simonetti.

Oh

I have not watched an episode yet of the TV show “Game of Thrones.” Instead, I’ve decided to read each book before I watch the season that the book depicts. Now that I see this picture, I realize I may be setting myself for disappoint when I watch the show and compare it the book.
