Widely praised for his translations of Boethius and Ariosto, esteemed translator David R. Slavitt here returns to Ovid, once again bringing to the contemporary ear the spirited, idiomatic, audacious charms of this master poet. The love here described is of the anguished, ruinous kind, like a sickness, and Ovid prescribes cures.

In high school, my Latin class translated some of Ovid's poems. Or rather, we thought we translated Ovid- what I read in this book was so much more than anything we ever managed to string together. Slavitt has created an extremely enjoyable new translation of these classic works.

Did you ever think the old poets weren't for you? Untrue! These love poems and letters are clever, funny, and oh-so-full of romantic intentions.
