As well as his famous Metamorphoses (the subject of another book in this series) he produced a large body of elegiac poetry, the Loves, Art of Love, Cures for Love, Heroines' Letters, Calendar, Sad Songs, and Letters from Pontus, all of which are accessibly discussed here in Genevieve Liveley's important re-evaluation of the poet's politics, poetics and erotics. She examines the impact on Ovid of Augustus' programmes for social and political reform, Ovid's experimentations with genre, and the tensions underlying his representations of sexuality and desire. 
520 8 |a Finally she assesses responses to Ovid's elegiac works by later love poets and writers, and reflects on the continued relevance and readability of his work for a twenty-first century audience."--BOOK JACKET.
