Acknowledged as the leading Roman poet of his generation, Ovid suffered the pain of banishment and exile for reasons that remain unknown until this day. But his work survives, and the classics in this special volume include excerpts from poems of love, pain, and transformation, including Amores (Loves), Heroides (Epistles of the Heroines), Ars Amatoria (The Art of Love), Fasti (The Calendar), Metamorphoses, and Tristia (Sorrows).
