OvidAmores Book 1
Ovid began in his late teens to write Amores (“Love Affairs”), many to a woman he calls Corinna. Originally collected in five books, he re-published them in the shorter, three-book edition we now have, sometime after 16 BC. The first book consists of fifteen poems plus a brief preface. These witty elegies established the young Ovid’s reputation as the leading Roman poet of love in the age of Augustus.
