Et plaudasaliquam mimo saltante puellam: Quae voluit legissevolet rescribere lectis: The first two books, aimed at men, contain sections which cover such topics as ‘not forgetting her birthday’, ‘letting her miss you – but not for long’ and ‘not asking about her age’. Munditie placeantfuscentur corpora Campo: Quid facisAeacide?

Huicsi sorte bibessortem concede priorem: It has oivdio argued that this passage represents a radical attempt to redefine relationships between men and women in Roman society, advocating a move away from paradigms of force and possession, towards concepts of mutual fulfilment.

Proximus huic labor est placitam exorare puellam: It is striking that through voidio his ironic discourse, Ovid never becomes ribald or obscene.

Ars Amatoria: The Art of Love

Qui fuerat cultorfactus amator erat. Saucius arrepto piscis teneatur ab hamo: Quod iuvatinvitae saepe dedisse volunt.

Aeacidae Chironego sum praeceptor Amoris: Fortune, and Venus, favor amztoria brave.
