Shameless 'rewrites'
2003-05-13
Added by: Jon Smith
I've commented upon this previously not sure if you've yet to recieve r read my previous note but...

The version of 'From a Letter Fro Lesbia' that you have here is in conflict with the poem of the same name by Dorothy Parker. the replacment of the word 'him' with 'Catulus' while 'fixing' the metre and making the allusion obvious to those who may otherwise not be aware is not how the poem originally, and to my knowledge still, appears in printed collections of Parker's works.

Whether this 'rewrite' is intentional or simply an oversite on your part is unknown to me, but I just thought I would again bring this up.
