Haß, Karin (2007) Lucilius und der Beginn der Persönlichkeitsdichtung in Rom. Stuttgart: Steiner. (Hermes Einzelschriften; 99.) 260 p. ISBN 978-3-515-09021-6. Price: €53.

This book is a revised version of the author's doctoral dissertation of 2004, which was given a Günther Wöhrle Award in 2005. Its main aim is to show that the Roman Persönlichkeitsdichtung begins already with Lucilius. Thus, all central aspects of Catullus' personal poetry can already be seen in the work of Lucilius. The main part of the book consists of a detailed thematic study of the fragments of Lucilius.
