Along with Tolstoy's "Anna Karenina," Flaubert's tragic novel stands as an ultimate portrayal of infidelity. Inciting a backlash of immorality charges, the novel was nevertheless an overwhelming success. Today it retains the power to generate empathy and compassion for its realistically drawn characters and admiration for Flaubert's controlled yet evocative style

The loves ; The art of beauty ; The remedies for love ; and the art of love by Publi Ovidi Nasó( Book )

1 edition published in 1925 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most sophisticated and daring poetic ironist of the early Roman Empire, Publius Ovidius Naso, is perhaps best known for his oft-imitated Metamorphoses. But the Roman poet also wrote lively and lewd verse on the subjects of love, sex, marriage, and adultery--a playful parody of the earnest erotic poetry traditions established by his literary ancestors. The Amores, Ovid's first completed book of poetry, explores the conventional mode of erotic elegy with some subversive and silly twists: the poetic narrator sets up a lyrical altar to an unattainable woman only to knock it down by poking fun at her imperfections. Ars Amatoria takes the form of didactic verse in which a purportedly mature and experienced narrator instructs men and women alike on how to best play their hands at the long con of love. Ovid's Erotic Poems offers a modern English translation of the Amores and Ars Amatoria that retains the irreverent wit and verve of the original. Award-winning poet Len Krisak captures the music of Ovid's richly textured Latin meters through rhyming couplets that render the verse as playful and agile as it was meant to be. Sophisticated, satirical, and wildly self-referential, Ovid's Erotic Poems is not just a wickedly funny send-up of romantic and sexual mores but also a sharp critique of literary technique and poetic convention.--Provided by publisher
