Read full description of the books I Fasti:
Les Fastes sont un poème du célèbre Ovide, connu pour ses Métamorphoses, ses Héroïdes et son art d’aimer. Expulsé de Rome pour la mer noire, il a beaucoup regretté sa mère patrie, comme un Dante ou un Casanova après lui : il a trompé sa mélancolie avec la rédaction de cette œuvre originale qui prend pour trame le calendrier romain et les fêtes qui le jalonnent. Ovide alterne heureusement des thèmes mythologiques, des allusions historiques, des faits de société ou d’actualité : le ton est tour à tour sublime, cocasse, piquant et léger. Les explications étymologiques sont tantôt fantaisistes, tantôt édifiante. C’est une lecture aussi délassante qu’instructive, dont le seul défaut est d’être très malheureusement tronqué des six derniers mois de d’année.
Read information about the authorPublius Ovidius Naso (20 March 43 BCE – CE 17/18), known as Ovid (/ˈɒvɪd/) 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 Amores ("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.
