9780521525626: Ovid: Epistulae ex Ponto Book I (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics)

When Ovid, already renowned for his love poetry, the Metamorphoses and other works, was exiled by Augustus to Tomis on the Black Sea in AD 8, he continued to write. After five books of Tristia, he composed a collection of verse letters, the Epistulae ex Ponto, in which he appeals to his friends and supporters in Rome, lamenting his lot and begging for their help in mitigating it. In these epistolary elegies his inventiveness flourishes no less than before and his imaginative self-fashioning is as ingenious and engaging as ever, although in a minor key. This commentary on Book I assists intermediate and advanced students in understanding Ovid's language and style, while guiding them in the appreciation of his poetic art. The introduction examines the literary background of the Epistulae ex Ponto, their relation to Ovid's earlier works, and their special interest and appeal to readers of Augustan poetry.

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 2014. IX,191p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. 'The stated intention of the author was to produce a teaching tool. In this Tissol succeeds admirably. The book is concise and relatively user-friendly, even if readers need to page back and forth from the text of the poems to the appropriate commentary. The general set-up is predictable. The usual Preface and List of Abbreviations is followed by an Introduction of twenty-eight pages (pp.1-28). Topics covered in the Introduction are, in turn ?Letters from exile: a new vessel for old grief,? ?The literary background?, ?The higher genres and Ovidian hyperbole,? ?Names in the Epistulae ex Ponto, ?Observations on style,? ?Fata libellorum: remarks on the early reception of the Epistulae ex Ponto? and ?A note on the text.? Next follows the full text of Book I in just over twenty pages (pp.31-52). The author has, as explained in the above ?note,? slightly adapted Richmond?s 1990 Teubner edition, sometimes choosing alternative readings and providing only a brief apparatus that (sensibly) reports ?only [those] readings that are discussed in the commentary? (p.28). The commentary itself comprises 127 pages (pp.53-180), which amounts mutatis mutandis to an average of just under thirteen pages for each poem commented upon. (.) overall the commentary is useful and extremely accessible for its projected users. It is a valuable addition to the arsenal of teaching tools available for academics intent on inculcating a love of our brilliant, star-crossed poet in the next generation of anglophone Latinists, for whom it opens up aspects of Ovid?s exilic poetry. It will also be of equal value to more mature academics. Tissol?s next publications (hopefully on Books II to IV) are eagerly awaited.' (JO-MARIE CLAASSEN in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014.10.60).
