History: Ovid

Posted on Sun 11 September 2022 in history

43 BCE- 18 CE - Ovid is said to be the last of the great poets of the Roman golden age. Ovid's work takes a carefree approach to traditional Roman values, and often lampooned them. His famous works include Amores, a series of love poems, Metamorphoses, and The Art of Love, a work which diagrams methods for the seduction of women. While Augustus attempted to eschew the loose sexual morals of the then Roman upper-class, Ovid is said to, perhaps mockingly, affirm them.
