Catullus 13 is often described as an invitation to dinner. Is it? What would a normal dinner invitation be like, and how does this poem invert and parody what one would expect in a dinner invitation? In a concise and clear essay, describe how the structure and rhetorical devices of the poem produce a comical effect. Be sure to quote the Latin text in your response.
