Author(s): Ovid; David Malouf (Introduction by); James Michie (Translator)
How to win a woman and how to keep her. How to attract a man and keep him interested. How to get over a love gone wrong. Human nature hasn't changed much over the past 2,000 years, and this new translation constitutes a fresh, accessible approach to the Roman poet's witty guide to seduction--a classic that became the model for nearly every latter-day book on romantic advice.
Translator Stanley Appelbaum presents an Introduction that discusses Ovid's life and works. This edition also features twelve plates of erotic artwork from a privately published volume of the 1930s.
