Catullus: Poem 85 (From Latin)

Poem 85
By Catullus
Translated by A.Z. Foreman

I hate and love. You probably want to know why I do.
I do not know. But I do feel. I'm being cut in two. 


The Original:

Ōdī et amō. Quāre id faciam, fortasse requīris.
nēsciō, sed fierī sentiō et excrucior.

  1. We translated this in high school Latin.
    It's much better this way.
