Product description

From the Author

Ovid was born on March 20, 43 B.C. After holding brief judicial posts as a young man, Ovid turned to writing poetry. Works such as Ars amatoria and Metamorphoseswere very popular, but for reasons that remain mysterious today, Emperor Augustus banished him to the island of Tomis in 8 B.C. Ovid wrote Tristia andEpistulae ex Ponto in exile. He died in Constanta, Romania, in 17 A.D.

From the Inside Flap

Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday. Little Black Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th-century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.

Ovid (c.43 BCE-17 CE). Ovid's other works available in Penguin Classics are The Erotic Poems, Fasti, Heroides and Metamorphoses.
