Beschreibung"The Art of Love" is a vivaciously witty poem on the art of seduction, with illustrative stories interwoven. Ovid tells men how to find a suitable mistress, how to win her and retain her affections; he goes on to instruct women on the art of captivating and retaining a lover. These lessons are cleverly reversed in "Remedies for Love," in which the poet gives directions for falling out of love. This volume also contains "Cosmetics," "Ibis," and three poems now judged not to be by Ovid. Mozley's edition has been revised and updated by G. P. Goold.
