Ovid's writings are hillarious and unbelievable! And the translation of these poems is fist-rate. The stories Ovid tells are outrageously amusing. In one poem, he wishes he was the ring on his lover's finger...'how far can he take that?' you might ask, well...pretty far. In another poem, he tells of how he waits outside his lover's house all night for her. And another story is a how-to tale of how one can sneek into their intrest's house without the husband seeing... scandalous! But each poem is told with enough mirth and cockiness that you cannot help but finish the tale with a smile on your face - no matter how brazen Ovid gets in the telling! And as I mentioned before, the translation of these 1st century poems has been done in the most excellent way, making it an easy read, as well as an accurate one. Altogether, this is a superb purchase!

It is highly recommended that this book is read with an open mind. Very eye opening in terms of how people of a certain time frame viewed matters of the heart.
