James Laughlin has been called the American Catullus. Like that most Greek of ancient Latin poets, he elevates his everyday subjects with wit and clarity of language. Love and hate, death and aging, politics, literature, travel, the horrors or war-- Laughlin's muse speaks of all these things with a fresh directness that makes his poems both timeless and contemporary.
