Written after he had been banished to the Black Sea city of Tomis by Emperor Augustus the Fasti is Ovid s last major poetic work Both a calendar of daily rituals and a witty sequence of stories recounted in a variety of styles it weaves together tales of gods and citizens together to explore Rome s history religious beliefs and traditions It may also be read as a subtle but powerful political manifesto which derides Augustus attempts to control his subjects by imposing his own mythology upon them after celebrating the emperor as a Jupiter on earth for example Ovid deliberately juxtaposes a story showing the king of the gods as a savage rapist Endlessly playful this is also a work of integrity and courage and a superb climax to the life of one of Rome s greatest writers, This collection of Ovid s poems deals with the whole spectrum of sexual desire ranging from deeply emotional declarations of eternal devotion to flippant arguments for promiscuity In the Amores Ovid addresses himself in a series of elegies to Corinna his beautiful elusive mistress The intimate and vulnerable nature of the poet revealed in these early poems vanishes in the notorious Art of Love in which he provides a knowing and witty guide to sexual conquest a work whose alleged obscenity led to Ovid s banishment from Rome in AD This volume also includes the Cures for Love with instructions on how to terminate a love affair and On Facial Treatment for Ladies an incomplete poem on the art of cosmetics, De los cl sicos de la literatura Ovidio nos deleita con una l rica que habla del m s puro de los sentimientos El arte de amar Con este libro Ovidio nos ofrece en forma de poema unos consejos para obtener el amor de una mujer para poder conservarlo asimismo da consejos a las mujeres sobre el adecuado comportamiento hacia los hombres Utilizando ejemplos de la literatura latina Ovidio nos dice qu es el amor por primera vez tratado como un sentimiento humano Cuenta con tres partes que llevan de la mano al lector en un paseo a trav s del m s complejo de los sentimientos br br Publio Ovidio Nas n aC dC es uno de los autores que mayor influencia ejerci en la literatura y en la vida de Roma y permanece actual a lo largo de los siglos por ste y por otras obra eternas como Las metamorfosis y Remedios del amor, i Drawn on by his eagerness for the open sky he left his guide and soared upwards i br br Enduring myths of vengeful gods and tragically flawed mortals from ancient Rome s great poet Ovid tells the tales of Theseus and the Minotaur Daedalus and Icarus the Calydonian Boar Hunt and many other famous myths br br Taken from Books VIII and IX of Mary M Innes s translation of i Metamorphoses i br br Ovid Publius Ovidius Naso BC AD br br i Little Black Classics i celebrates Penguin s th birthday introducing works from the classics br
