Product description

"Two chapters began as lectures, while others were at first intended for inclusion in a larger work (The Augustan Aristocracy). The appeal of the poet becoming ever more seductive, scope and direction changed. No commentary happens to exist on Ovid's latest poems, their use and value tend to be ignored. The outcome is therefore a kind of manual, albeit not altogether predictable, designed to cover life and letters in the obscure decade that concludes the long reign of Caesar Augustus. Each of the twelve chapters was composed to be read and understood by itself. Coherence and structure has been accorded proper attention, so I trust. The time and order of composition may (or may not) engage the curious and the erudite" (from the preface by the author)
