ovid PUBLIUS ovidIUS Nasd (43 B.C.A.D. 17), Roman poet, the last of the Augustan age, was born in 43 B.C., the last year of the republic, the year of the death of Cicero.
From LoveToKnow 1911
OVID [PUBLIUS OVIDIUS [[Nasd] (43 B.C.-A.D]]. 17), Roman poet, the last of the Augustan age, was born in 43 B.C., the last year of the republic, the year of the death of Cicero . Thus the only form of political life known to Ovid was that of the absolute rule of Augustus and his successor. His character was neither strengthened nor sobered, like that of his older contemporaries, by personal recollection of the crisis through which the republic passed into the empire. There is no sense of political freedom in his writings. The spirit inherited from his ancestors was that of the Italian country districts, not that of Rome . He was born on the 10th of March (his self-consciousness has preserved the exact day of the month)' at Sulmo, now Sulmona , a town of the Paeligni , picturesquely situated among the mountains of the Abruzzi: its wealth of waters and natural beauties seem to have strongly affected the young poet's imagination (for he often speaks of them with affectionate admiration) and to have quickened in him that appreciative eye for the beauties of nature which is one of the chief characteristics of his poems. The Paeligni were one of the four small mountain peoples whose proudest memories were of the part they had played in the Social War. But in spite of this they had no old race-hostility with Rome, and their opposition to the senatorial aristocracy in the Social War would predispose them to accept the empire. Ovid, whose father was of equestrian family, belonged by birth to the same social class as Tibullus and Propertius, that of old hereditary landowners; but he was more fortunate than they in the

Publius Ovidius Naso, March 20 43 BC AD) Roman poet known to the English -speaking world as Ovid , wrote on topics of love , abandoned women , and mythological transformations. Ovid wrote in elegiac couplets , with the exception of his great Metamorphoses, which he wrote in dactylic hexameter in imitation of Vergil's Aeneid or Homer's epics. Ovid offers not an epic narrative like his predecessors but promises a chronological account of the cosmos from creation to his own day, incorporating many myths and legends from the Greek and Roman traditions. Augustus banished Ovid in A.D. to Tomis on the Black Sea for reasons that remain mysterious (Ovid himself wrote that it was because of an 'error' and a 'carmen' - a mistake and a poem). He may have had an affair with a female relative of Augustus, and the 'carmen' mentioned by Ovid may be his supposedly immoral Ars Amatoria , which had been available for some time.

Statue of Ovid the writer Ovids playful poetry made him a favorite among Romes elite, but angered Emperor Augustus.
Just as he was producing his finest work, Ovid (43 BC 17 AD) was exiled to the darkest corner of the empire, never to return.
A good start in life
Like many Roman writers, Ovid was born outside Rome, to a respectable equestrian family who were wealthy enough to send him and his brother to school in Rome. His father wanted him to study hard to become a civil servant, like many other members of his class. But he often skipped school to work on the poetry that he enjoyed much more.
With his education completed, Ovid took some time out to travel to Greece, Sicily and Asia Minor (now modern-day Turkey). When he returned, he submitted to his fathers will and took some junior official positions, but it wasnt the life he wanted.
Full-time poet
Ovid abandoned his job to spend his time on his poetry. His first work, the Amores (the Loves) was an immediate success. It was quickly followed by Heroides (the Heroines), Medicamina Faciei (the Art of Beauty), Ars Amatoria (the Art of Love) and Remedia Amoris (Remedies for Love).

Publius Ovidius Naso, better known to modern readers as Ovid, was born on March 20, 43 BC, at Sulmo, 90 miles from Rome. Ovid's father, who was a respected member of the equestrian order, expected Ovid to become a lawyer and official and had him schooled extensively for that purpose. After working in various judicial posts, Ovid made the decision to dedicate himself to a life of poetry instead. Ovid's elegance, both in verse and comportment, made him a favorite among the moneyed class of Rome, and it was not long before Ovid was widely hailed as the most brilliant poet of his generation. His elegant verses on love appealed to a society being forced into a period of moral reformation by the emperor, Augustus. It may have been these same poems, namely those of his The Art of Love (3 BC), that caused Ovid to be exiled to the barren region of Tomi in AD 8.

32. Creation Of The Earth: Greek And Roman Mythology
Excerpts from The Metamorphoses of ovid
The Creation of the Earth
and the Great Flood
according to
Greek and Roman Mythology
abstracted from The Metamorphoses of Ovid
D. L. Ashliman
Before there was earth or sea or heaven, there existed only chaos: shapeless, unorganized, lifeless matter. There was no sun, no moon, and no air. Elements existed, but they had neither form nor character. The earth was without firmness, the water without fluidity, and the sky without light. There was opposition in all things: hot conflicted with cold, wet with dry, heavy with light, and hard with soft. Finally a god, a natural higher force, resolved this conflict, separating earth from heaven, parting the dry land from the waters, and dividing the clear air from the clouds, thus organizing all things into a balanced union. In the highest sphere he made a heavenly vault of weightless and untainted ether. The next lower region he filled with air, light but not without substance. Then came the heavy earth, which sank down under its own weight and was encircled by the sea. Thus did the god, whichever god it was, set order to the chaotic mass by separating it into its components, then organizing them into a harmonious whole.
