Synopsis

Amores is Ovid's first completed book, published in 16 BC. Amores was written in the elegiac distich. The book follows the model of the erotic elegy-perhaps the most common theme of the time-as treated before by Tibullus and Propertius, but often in a subversive and humorous way, with common motifs and devices being exaggerated to the point of absurdity. However, the Amores could also be considered a mock epic.This is a famous English verse translation made by Christopher Marlowe. Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
