              The Art of Love

              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 rem...arkable 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.

              The Metamorphoses: Ovid's Epic Poem, Translated by Great English Authors and Poets of the 18th Century (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Ovid's legendary poem, comprising a total of two hundred and fifty ancient myths, is present in its entirety in this edition of The Metamorphoses. The Metamorphoses is commonly referred to simply as an 'epic poem', when in actuality the text encompasses a variety of genres in tel...ling stories of magnificent breadth and scale. At times adventure, at times romance, at times horrifying, and at times amusing - the poem spans the depth of human emotion and experience, expressed in the sublime and significant medium of the poetic verse. Written in the 1st century A.D., The Metamorphoses is thus a supreme chronicle of classical legends and myths. The prevalent polytheistic faiths of the time held that many Gods created the world, with various feuds and adventures between the Godly realms and Earth ensuing for ages thereafter. By the time Ovid authored this work, there were several centuries of myths written and present, which he duly converted into verse form.
