9780199540334: The Love Poems (Oxford World's Classics)

The elegant verse and subtle observation of the Amores, The Art of Love, and The Cures of Love made their author the talk of Rome. Ovid saw love as a game at which both sexes could play without getting hurt - as long as they stuck to his rules, but primarily he wrote these sparkling and often erotic poems to entertain, and after two thousand years they still give enormous pleasure.

Review:

'Melville has worked a miracle. It is difficult to imagine that there will ever be an English version so faithful to the Latin, and written in such sound and engaging verse.'The Times.

'Melville has worked a miracle ... It is difficult to imagine that there will ever be an English version so faithful to the Latin, and written in such sound and engaging verse.' David West, The Times

'a new, faithful yet engaging translation ... Ovid was a brilliant, innovative, elegant, witty and ironic poet, who has entertained readers for thousands of years and this new version will give pleasure to many more.' Day by Day

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ovid s love-poetry was typically original and innovative. His witty analysis in the Amores (Loves) of the elegiac relationship develops with relentless irony its essential paradox - love as simultaneously fulfilling and destructive - to its logical conclusion: definitive disestablishment of the poet-lover s role as presented by Gallus, Tibullus, and Propertius. In its place he went on to offer in the Ars Amatoria (Art of Love) and Remedia Amoris (Cures for Love) an equally brilliant presentation of an alternative and more realistic conception of love as a game at which both sexes can play without getting hurt - providing they stick to Ovid s rules. Under the surface of Ovid s wit there runs an undercurrent of serious meaning: the theme of the poet s complete control of his medium and his art and a proud consciousness of his achievements. His claim to be the Virgil of elegy is arrestingly justified in these extraordinarily accomplished poems. Alan Melville s accomplished translations match the sophisticated elegance of Ovid s Latin. Their witty modern idiom is highly entertaining. In this volume he has included the brilliant version of the Art of Love by Moore, published more than fifty years ago and still unequalled; the small revisions he has made will enhance the reader s admiration for Moore s achievement. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World s Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford s commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
