Title: The Poems of Exile: Tristia and the Black Sea Letters
Author: Ovid Peter Green
In 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 Constantza, on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea The real reason for the emperor s action has never come to light, and all of Ovid s subsequent efforts to secure either a reprieve or, at the very least, a transfIn 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 Constantza, on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea The real reason for the emperor s action has never come to light, and all of Ovid s subsequent efforts to secure either a reprieve or, at the very least, a transfer to a less dangerous place of exile failed Two millennia later, the agonized, witty, vivid, nostalgic, and often slyly malicious poems he wrote at Tomis remain as fresh as the day they were written, a testament for exiles everywhere, in all ages.The two books of the Poems of Exile, the Lamentations Tristia and the Black Sea Letters Epistulae ex Ponto , chronicle Ovid s impressions of Tomis its appalling winters, bleak terrain, and sporadic raids by barbarous nomads as well as his aching memories and ongoing appeals to his friends and his patient wife to intercede on his behalf While pretending to have lost his old literary skills and even to be forgetting his Latin, in the Poems of Exile Ovid in fact displays all his virtuoso poetic talent, now concentrated on one objective ending the exile But his rhetorical message falls on obdurately deaf ears, and his appeals slowly lose hope A superb literary artist to the end, Ovid offers an authentic, unforgettable panorama of the death in life he endured at Tomis.
Ovid Peter Green
Publius Ovidius Naso 20 March 43 BCE CE 17 18 , known as Ovid v d in the English speaking world, was a Roman poet best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15 book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for collections of love poetry in elegiac couplets, especially the As Love Affairs and Ars Amatoria Art of Love His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature The Metamorphoses remains one of the most important sources of classical mythology.Ovid is traditionally ranked alongside Virgil and Horace, his older contemporaries, as one of the three canonic poets of Latin literature He was the first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus, and the Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists He enjoyed enormous popularity, but in one of the mysteries of literary history he was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error, a poem and a mistake , but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars.Ovid s prolific poetry includes the Heroides, a collection of verse epistles written as by mythological heroines to the lovers who abandoned them the Fasti, an incomplete six book exploration of Roman religion with a calendar structure and the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto, two collections of elegies in the form of complaining letters from his exile His shorter works include the Remedia Amoris Cure for Love , the curse poem Ibis, and an advice poem on women s cosmetics He wrote a lost tragedy, Medea, and mentions that some of his other works were adapted for staged performance.
