By Alessandro Barchiesi
During this clean review of Ovid's attention-grabbing poem Fasti, Alessandro Barchiesi presents a brand new imaginative and prescient of the interplay among Ovid and the well known ruler Augustus. Fasti, a poem concerning the vacations and ceremonial dinner days of the Roman calendar, was once written whereas Ovid used to be in Rome and revised whereas he was once in exile at the barbarian frontier, banished by way of Augustus from the aesthetic society of Rome. Ovid's paintings in exile evinces advanced causes; he addresses Augustus and begs him to raise the despised exile, yet while covertly reviews Augustus's "New Rome." even if contemporary scholarship has focused on the oppositions among poet and ruler published in Ovid's paintings, Barchiesi's research transcends the competition of pro-Augustan or anti-Augustan readings. In a full of life, energetic narrative that is dependent upon shut textual research, Barchiesi underscores the $64000 poetic offerings in addition to the political concerns made by means of Ovid in Fasti. finally, his research leads us to a extra nuanced figuring out of the connection among buyers and poets. either students and basic readers will discover a newly significant and engaging Ovid in those pages. Translated with revisions from Il poeta e il principe: Ovido e il discorso Augusteo (1994).
