The Art of Love

Ovid (Book - 2002 )
Average Rating: 4 stars out of 5.
The Art of Love

Item Details

In the first century a.d., Ovid, author of the groundbreaking epic poem Metamorphoses , came under severe criticism for The Art of Love , which playfully instructed women in the art of seduction and men in the skills essential for mastering the art of romantic conquest. In this remarkable translation, James Michie breathes new life into the notorious Roman's mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals love's timeless dilemmas and Ovid's enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic.
