Through a discussion of her volume, Chasing Catullus (2004), Josephine Balmer examines the varied ways in which contemporary poetry and classical translation might interact and overlap, exploring the border territory between past and present, translation and original, in the new form of ‘transgressions’. This chapter also argues that, through the use of other, ancient voices, it is possible to approach highly personal and emotive subject matter, such as bereavement and loss.

Keywords:   Chasing Catullus, Josephine Balmer, contemporary poetry, classical translation, transgressions
