Meet the Author

Publius Ovidius Naso (43 B.C. - c. 17 A.D.) was an important Roman epic poet, author of several classical collection of poety, including THE METAMORPHOSES, THE HEROIDES, AMORES, and ARS AMORITA. Born in the Appenines east of Rome to an Equestrian family, Ovid studied rhetoric in Rome and initially pursued a career in law. He abandoned barritry at age 18, becoming a very popular poet within a few years. Ovid eventually offended emperor Augustus and was exiled to Tomis in A.D. 8 where he ceased work.

This is supposed to be poetic style but it's written out on plain paragraphs. Seek out Ian Johnston's translation, it's much easier to read and heavily annotated with extensive end notes.
