Two millennia later, theMoreIn the year A.D. 8, Emperor Augustus sentenced the elegant, brilliant, and sophisticated Roman poet Ovid to exile - permanently, as it turned out - at Tomis, modern Constanta, on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea. Two millennia later, the agonized, witty, vivid, nostalgic, and often slyly malicious poems Ovid wrote at Tomis remain as fresh as the day they were written, a testament for exiles everywhere and in all ages. Peter Greens informative introduction describes Ovids literary and personal circumstances against the backdrop of Roman culture and the politics of the day. His translation, explanatory notes, and glossary will bring these poems to a wide audience of students and general readers.
