Editorial Reviews

Llewelyn Morgan
Ovid's poem on the Roman calendar is now fully rehabilated as a text displaying the wittiest poet of antiquity at his lucid, subversive, scintillating best: a selective and much embellished account of the Roman ritual year, one book per month, either lost after the end of June, or aborted by the poet, ahead of the politically sensitive months names after Julius (Caesar) and Augustus.
Times Literary Supplement
From the Publisher
"Fasti has burst upon the scholarly scene as a work of tremendous importance for our understanding of religion under the Principate...have provided us with what must be seen as a new commentary upon the poem...But the real value of this new Fasti, of course, lies not in its front or back material but in the lively rendition of Ovid's own words...Boyle and Woodard have given us a fresh-sounding poem with updated diction." —Christopher Brunelle, Boston College
