. Catullus

Gauis Valerius Catullus (c.84-54 B.C) was a Latin poet during the late Roman Republic. He was among the few Latin poets that wrote in the neoteric style, focusing on his own life rather than depictions of the classical heroes. Because he wrote about his daily life, which he spent in high Roman society, Catullus shocked but delighted his audience with his raw, and often profane poetry. Catullus' work is now considered a great source of education for the Latin language and lifestyle.
