The Art Of Love by Ovid

The book in question is a didactic poem that explores the intricacies of love and seduction from the perspective of ancient Roman society. It offers a series of instructions and advice on how to attract and retain lovers, presented in a playful and often ironic tone. The work is divided into three books, with the first two primarily addressing men and teaching them how to find, win, and keep a woman's love, while the third book is directed at women, advising them on how to secure and captivate a man's affection. Throughout the text, the author interweaves mythological references and personal anecdotes, creating a rich tapestry of amorous strategies that reflect the social and moral attitudes towards love and relationships of his time.
