Poetry #201
(published November 18, 2004)
Poem 111
by Catullus
Aufillena, to live satisfied with one man is the glory
Of all greatest glories for wives: but it is better
For any woman to submit herself to anyone rather than
For a mother to conceive cousins from her uncle.

Catullus was an ancient Roman Epicurean poet. We are not making this up.
