  • The Poems of Exile by Ovid
    The Poems of Exile (English, Paperback) Ovid

    "This is no small achievement. For the language-lover the translation provides elegant, flowing English verse, for the classicist it conveys close approximation to the Latin meaning coupled with a sense of the movement and rhythmic variety of Ovid's language"--Geraldine Herbert-Brown, editor of Ovid's Fasti: Historical Readings at its Bimillennium "This book fills a gap. There is no similar annotated English translation of Ovid's exile poetry. Thoroughly grounded in Ovidian scholarship, Green's introduction and notes are helpful and informative. The translation is accurate, idiomatic, and lively, closely imitating the Latin elegiac couplet and capturing Ovid's changing moods."--Karl Galinsky, author of Ovid's Metamorphoses: An Introduction to the Basic Aspects

  • Elegies of Love by Ovid
    Elegies of Love (English, Paperback) Ovid, Auguste Rodin

    Mostly self-educated, Rodin was a passionate re-reader of his favourite books, and Ovid's Love Elegies occupied a special place in his imagination. These woodcut illustrations were taken from the astonishingly free and improvisatory life drawings he made in his later years. For many people these are the most entrancing manifestation of his genius.
