One of ancient Rome's most celebrated poets, Ovid (43 B.C.-A.D. 18) wrote during the reign of Augustus. His works reflect a sentiment of art for pleasure's sake, without the ethical or moral overtones, which perhaps accounts for his enduring popularity. For more than two thousand years, readers have delighted in Ovid's playful eloquence; his influence on other writers has ranged from Dante and Chaucer to Shakespeare and Milton, and scenes from his stories have inspired many great works by Western artists. This selection of thirty stories from the verse translation by F.A. Wright of Ovid's famous work, The Metamorphoses, does full justice to the poet's elegance and wit. All of the tales involve a form of metamorphosis, or transformation, and are peopled by mythological gods, demigods, and mortals: Venus and Adonis, Pygmalion, Apollo and Daphne, Narcissus, Perseus, and Andromeda, Orpheus and Eurydice, the Cyclops, and Circe, among others. Although most of the stories did not originate with Ovid, it is quite possible that had he not written them down, these oral traditions would have been lost forever -- and with them, a vast and valuable amount of Greco-Roman culture. This collection of the poet's best and most beloved narrative verses reflects the vitality of classical mythology. A selection of the Common Core State Standards Initiative

Poésies by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in French and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les dieux ont un jour quitté les assemblées des mortels et ne leur ont plus permis de les rejoindre dans la lumineuse clarté du jour. La poésie, par l'harmonie musicale de ses accords et de ses images, a pour mission de chanter la nostalgie de ces temps bénis.Catulle est le grand-prêtre de cette anamnèse exaltante et mélancolique. En même temps qu'il reconstruit ce monde onirique des bénédictions enfuies, il est contraint de le déconstruire par les réalités individuelles et collectives. De là, cette égale intensité dans l'enthousiasme des chants d'amour et dans la virulence des attaques satiriques. L'unité de l'oeuvre de Catulle, d'apparence si composite, réside dans cet engagement lyrique de l'individu qui oppose aux laideurs du réel les souvenirs lumineux de l'idéal. L'alliance de la grâce et de la trivialité donne à cette poésie une saveur unique dans la littérature antique. -- 4ème de couverture
