"The Love Books of Ovid" is a collection of four works of Roman poet Ovid's verses on love in English prose translation. Ovid, born in 43 B.C., a contemporary of Virgil and Horace, lived during the reign of Augustus and is perhaps best remembered today for his work on Roman mythology entitled "The Metamorphoses". This volume collects the poet's following works: "The Loves", "The Art of Love", "Love's Cure", and "The Art of Beauty". Ovid was an innovator in the writing of love poetry in that he changed the focus of the poem from the poet to love itself and examined the effect of love on people.
