He is best known for the Metamorphoses, a book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for collections of love poetry in elegiac couplets, especially the Amores (Love Affairs) and Ars Amatoria (The Art of Love).

Ovid In summer's heat, and mid-time of the day, To rest my limbs upon a bed I lay; One window shut, the other open stood, Which gave such light as twinkles in a wood, Like twilight glimpse at setting of the sun, Or night being past, and yet not day begun.

Such light to shamefaced maidens must be shown, Where they may sport, and seem to be unknown. In addition to the Metamorphoses, Ovid wrote many books of poetry in the form of elegiac couplets, including the Amores (The Loves), the Heroides (Epistles of the Heroines), and the Ars amatoria (The Art of Love).

He also wrote a tragedy, Medea, which has been lost. “Ars Amatoria” (“The Art of Love”) is a collection of 57 didactic poems (or, perhaps more accurately, a burlesque satire on didactic poetry) in three books by the Roman lyric poet Ovid, written in elegiac couplets and completed and published in 1 CE.

“Amores” (“Loves” or “Amours”) is a collection of 49 elegies by the Roman lyric poet Ovid. It was his first completed book of poetry, published in five volumes (later reduced to three) in 16 BCE or earlier.

An elegy is a poem written to or about a specific person. Ovid's elegies are often called Amores, the Latin for The Loves, or sometimes referred to as Ovid's Love Poems.

This is to distinguish these poems from Ovid's later work Ars Amatoria– The Art of Love. Prosody | Eli sion | The Elegiac Couplet | Reading Aloud.

Since the Amores may well be among the first Latin poems a student encounters, it may be helpful to provide a brief introduction to the rules of Latin prosody (the quantity of individual syllables) and to the reading aloud of elegiac couplets.

For fuller discussion see D. Raven, Latin Metre: an Introduction (Cambridge, ). Book I of the Amores includes programmatic elegies, as Diotima's excerpt from Batston points out in Notes on Ovid and the Amores by William W.

Forced into the elegiac genre, Naso understands that, if he is indeed to write elegies, he must suffer the pains of elegiac love, and so he does, creating for the extra-textual reader an imaginary region somewhere between the poems of which he is the fictional author and the poems authored by Ovid, which comprise the text of the Amores.

This. Elegiac couplets are a poetic form used by Greek lyric poets for a variety of themes usually of smaller scale than those of epic poetry. The ancient Romans frequently used elegiac couplets in love poetry, as in Ovid's with heroic couplets, the couplets are usually self-contained and express a complete idea.

Elegiac couplets consist of alternating lines of dactylic hexameter and. Latin selections are drawn in part from his elegiac poems and demonstrate the new range of directions for elegy developed by Ovid: not merely love elegy (Amores, and with a fresh epistolary form in Heroides); but also didactic and aetiological elegy (Ars Amatoria, Fasti), each with a twist on expected subject-matter; and exile poetry (Tristia.

The elegiac couplet (on which see the next section) was originally used, first by the Greeks and then by the Romans, for short epigrams, often on erotic subjects.

Catullus (c. 84 to 54 BC), wrote not only epigrams, but longer poems in elegiac couplets; he also gave to many of.Ovid Finds His Muse.

The poem begins with a metrical and generic joke. The poet was preparing to write epic poetry: his first word is the same as the first word of the Aeneid, and he would have continued writing in dactylic hexameter, except that apparently Cupid “stole a foot.” [].
