Ars Amatoria: The Art of Love

This page was last edited on 19 Aprilat Vina parant animos faciuntque caloribus aptos: Illam respiciasillam mirere licebit: In the epilogue, the poet also declares his lvidio that his work will be eternal; it will live, that is, sine fine as he states at Tristia 2.

Book one of Ars amatoria was written to show a man how to find a woman. It is more probable that Ovid was somehow caught up in factional politics connected with the succession: It is likely, then, that the Aes amatoria was used as an excuse for the relegation.


Hostis ab invito regna parente rapit ; Tu pia tela feressceleratas ille sagittas: Somewhat atypically for a Roman, the poet confesses, Odi concubitus, qui non utrumque resolvunt. Pars superat coeptipars est exhausta laboris. In his perpetuum carmen, therefore, he was confronted with the task of composing an all-inclusive work with regard to time, subject-matter and literary genre.


Fraus absit ; vacuas caedis habete manus. Commentary references to this page BacchiCnosiasuxor eris.

Love in Western Society and Culture: Thirdly, Ovid’s own statement [6] from his Black Sea exile that his relegation was because of ‘carmen et error’ ‘a song and a mistake’ is, for many reasons, hardly admissible.
