The narrator was so deranged for wanting to kill because of an eye. “He had the eye of a vulture—a pale blue eye, with a film over it.

A few of those who get to be powerful in the organization do so because they are capable and the want to put themselves at the disposal of God and of others who are faithful.

This shows some sense in Catullus, and that he is ready to get over his feelings for Lesbia and stop being a fool. In these first two lines, Catullus seems to be very levelheaded, and has a ver
