crystal bone into skinny air.
The small hours open their wounds for me.

I preserve this wolf as the wasteland gave it to me.

ISBN-10: 8424914856

ISBN-13: 9788424914851

A menudo se ha subestimado los angeles poesía del destierro de Ovidio, Tristes y Pónticas; este volumen, mediante una traducción y una introducción esclarecedoras, muestra que en ambas surge un nuevo género en l. a. lírica romana, l. a. elegía epistolar.
Tristes y Pónticas son las dos obras elegíacas que Ovidio compuso en su exilio de Tomis, en l. a. provincia romana de Mesia (actual Rumania), a orillas del Mar Negro, después de que Augusto le desterrara en el eight d.C. debido al carmen (el Arte de amar) y blunders (una culpa que jamás se ha aclarado) que cita el poeta.
Las Tristes fueron compuestas entre el eight y el 12 (3 o four primeros años de destierro), y consisten en cincuenta elegías repartidas en cinco libros y dedicadas sobre todo a Fabia, tercera esposa de Ovidio. Están marcadas por un tono afectuoso y sincero, aunque pragmático: el poeta trata por todos los medios a su alcance de lograr su regreso a Roma, mediante los angeles intercesión de los angeles esposa o de algún amigo. Es destacable l. a. extensa elegía que constituye todo el libro II, dirigida a Augusto.
Los cuatro libros de Pónticas o Cartas desde el Ponto aparecen entre los años 12 y sixteen (el cuarto es póstumo). Contienen cuarenta y seis epístolas, dirigidas ya no sólo a los angeles esposa, sino a multitud de miembros de los angeles nobleza romana, a escritores y a políticos. Ovidio mantiene y aun intensifica el tono quejumbroso y las súplicas a esposa y amigos, las humillantes lisonjas al emperador y a su familia para obtener su perdón. Ello produce una sensación de monotonía, pero se alcanzan momentos de intenso patetismo y lirismo.
Con ambos epistolarios, Ovidio efectúa una fusión de los géneros elegíaco y epistolar. Ovidio ya había mostrado su dominio de los angeles elegía en Amores, que culminaba los angeles línea de Catulo, propercio y Tibulo. En cuanto cartas, ofrecen información abundante y diversa (paisaje, clima, vida y costumbres de los angeles región del Ponto, actividad militar en los angeles zona fronteriza del imperio y afectos y pensamientos del poeta), y contienen mucho de narrativo y descriptivo que en ocasiones se asemeja a los angeles poesía didáctica y a l. a. épica.
