About the Author

Ovid (43 BC-AD 17) was born in central Italy. He was sent to Rome where he realised that his talent lay with poetry rather than with politics. His first published work was 'Amores', a collection of short love poems. He was expelled in A.D. 8 by Emperor Augustus for an unknown reason and went to Tomis on the Black Sea, where he died.

What People are Saying About This

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

Thhis is an outstanding book for anyone who is at all interested in the history of early Greek and Roman Literature. If you have a good understanding of the Greek Pantheon, you will appreciate Ovid's contribution all the more. Imagine yourself living and reading at or near the time that Ovid wrote. Imagine the world as it was and the way folks believed it could be. This is entertaining and ancient. This should be mandatory reading for every Freshmen High student or earlier. An outstanding translation definitely worth the time and money.
