The art of love and other poems by Ovid( Book )

Valerius Flaccus by Gaius Valerius Flaccus( Book )

VALERIUS FLACCUS, Gaius, Latin poet who flourished in the period c. A.D. 70-90, composed during the course of the decade 70-80, in smooth monotonous correct and sometimes obscure style, an incomplete epic 'Argonautica' in eight books on the Quest for the Golden Fleece. The poem is typical of his age, being a free re-handling of the story already told by Apollonius Rhodius (LCL No. 1) to whom he is superior in arrangement, vividness, and description of character. He shows much imitation of the language and thought of Virgil, and much learning, rhetoric, and ornamentation. The chief interest of the epic lies in the relations between Medea and Jason, especially the growth of Medea's love where Valerius is at his best. The long series of adventures and various 'Roman' allusions suggest that the poet meant to do honour to Vespasian (to whom the epic is dedicated) with special reference to that emperor's ships in waters round Britain
Statius by P. Papinius Statius( Book )
72 editions published between 1928 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 1,292 libraries worldwide
Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 AD. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct picture quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome. Statius published his Thebaid in the last decade of the first century. This epic recounting the struggle between the two sons of Oedipus for the kingship of Thebes is his masterpiece, a stirring exploration of the passions of civil war. The extant portion of his unfinished Achilleid is strikingly different in tone; this second epic begins as a charming account of Achilles' life. -- Jacket

The art of love by Ovid( Book )
7 editions published between 1929 and 1985 in English and Latin and held by 93 libraries worldwide
In the first century a.d., Ovid, author of the groundbreaking epic poem Metamorphoses, came under severe criticism for The Art of Love, which playfully instructed women in the art of seduction and men in the skills essential for mastering the art of romantic conquest. In this remarkable translation, James Michie breathes new life into the notorious Roman's mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals love's timeless dilemmas and Ovid's enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic. From the Trade Paperback edition

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso) was born at Sulmo in central Italy in 43 BC. After holding some minor judicial positions, he abandoned a career in public service for writing, and was soon acknowledged as the leading Roman poet of his generation. But in AD 8 he was suddenly banished by the Emperor Augustus for reasons which remain the subject of much speculation. Despite complaints and pleas to Augustus, and later to his successor, Tiberius, Ovid remained in exile until his death in AD 17

OVID (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 B.C.-A.D. 17), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in his exile. His main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetical treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love-poems, the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love-letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile - the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae ex Ponto. Poetry came naturally to Ovid who at his best is lively, graphic and lucid
Statius by P. Papinius Statius( Book )
6 editions published between 1928 and 1989 in Latin and Undetermined and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Argonautica by Gaius Valerius Flaccus( Book )
10 editions published between 1936 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 21 libraries worldwide
"Apollonius Rhodius' epic poem Argonautica, written in Greek during the third century BC, has become the de facto standard version of the story of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Valerius Flaccus' Latin epic of the late first century AD is by contrast little known, even to those otherwise well-read in ancient literature. This translation offers an accurate and appealing version in English verse." "Flaccus' Argonautica lends keen Roman touches to the tale, developing further the sense of adventure and the erotic passion found in the Greek. It offers vicarious travel to exotic lands, gripping heroism in the face of wondrous monsters and an "all-star team" of famous Greek heroes. The stirring sea voyage is interwoven with blossoming love between Jason and Medea, their young passion not yet gone sour."
