| hey all, i am an AP latin student studying Catullus's works. Poem 73 is an assignment of mine, and while the translation gave me little problems, i can't seem to find any imagery whatsever, or maybe im just being too specific in looking for visual imagery, if anyone has any sugguestions they would be greatly appreciated! thanks! |

|You'll never find respectable literal translations on the internet, that would make my AP Latin class much easier as well.|

May I suggest Guy Lee's translation, and the Loeb libraries is not too bad either (prose).
There is not much imagery in number 73, but there is at least two instances of allusion to other poetry, using similar turns of phrase. See if you can root these out. A complete translation by the one person (for consistancy of phrasing) is useful for this task.

|Desista de querer merecimento|
De algo por qualquer bem que tu hás feito;
E pio pensar alguém tornar poder.
Ingratas,pois,todas as coisas são.
De nada adianta generosamente
Algo fazer, e (pior!) molesta e enfada.
Toma a mim como exemplo a quem ninguém
Mais grave e duramente mais acossa
Que este que há pouco a mim unicamente
Teve por seu amigo.
