Excerpt from book:
III. WORKS OF OVID. The following list contains all the works usually attributed to Ovid now extant, arranged in the order in which they were composed, in so far as this can be ascertained. Doubts have been entertained with regard to the three last of the series, numbered IX, X, XI, but they are generally received as authentic:— I. Heroides. A collection of twenty-one letters in Elegiac verse, feigned to have been written by ladies or chiefs in the Heroic age to the absent objects of their love. Doubts have been entertained by some critics, but without good reason, of the genuineness of the last six of these; others confine their suspicions to the seventeenth, nineteenth, and twenty-first; while a third party object to the fifteenth alone. The pieces rejected are attributed to Aulus Sabinus, a contemporary poet, the author of several epistles in answer to those composed by Ovid, three of which have been preserved, and are frequently appended to complete editions of the works of the latter. We find an allusion to both in Amor. 2. 18,19 ' Quod licet, aut Artes teneri profitemur Amoris, (Hei mini! praeceptis urgeor ipse meis,) Aut, quod Penelopes verbis reddatur Vlyxi, Scribimus; aut lacrimas, Phylli relicta, tuas; Quod Paris, et Macareus, et quod male gratus I'ason, Hippolytique parens, Hippolytusque legant: Quodque tenens strictum Dido miserabilis ensem Dicat, et Aeoliae Lesbis amica lyrae. Quam celer e toto rediit meus orbe Sabinus, Scriptaque diversis rettulit ille locis!
