    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookThe Fasti is an exploration of the ancient roman calendar Written by Ovid in the early first century only six books of the poem are extant today one for each month from January through June Whether the other books were lost over the years or never written at all is unknown But believe me six is enough I don’t want to trash this poem The Fasti is considered a “classic” only in the broadest possible use of the term so I knew what I was getting into I read this because I was reading everything else by Ovid anyway and it was sitting in t

    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookOvid got booted by Augustus and wrote a poem on the calendar his last and perhaps least impressive work There is no rhythm or rhyme and the similes and metaphors that arise are weak though I enjoyed the line Chance gives the poet scope The poem offers a fascinating and didactic overview of Roman religion but the allusions are obscure to the point of bewilderment and the language is often strained for inspiration On the good side Ovid is saying something serious about Augustus and the nature of tyranny one starts to tally the mentions of Romulus and the overuse of the foundation myths which are well used when Ovid hails Augustus as saviour and Romulus as a rapist Sarcasm and insult are interwoven very neatly and the poem

    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookA little Metamorphoses the Ursa Minor to its Major with the same kind of etiological storytelling revolving around festivals and rituals Ovid is still playful though it's a bit muted especially with the calendar structure to adhere to The great joke of the Fasti is that it stopped just before July and August seemingly to spite the caesars but after reading it's clear that was just of a funny coincidence where it happened to cut off

    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookWhile the subject matter may be about the Roman calendar there is a lot to look into with the Fasti At its most basic level Ovid focuses on the etiological stories behind both the naming of and the activities during religious events Ovid often leaves multiple reasons for things One that sticks out in my mind is the several different reasons why May and June are called what they are This area of the poem reminds me the most of the Metamorphoses Often times the major festiva

    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookIt took a minute or a week but Fasti started clicking and after reading the intro in the Penguin edition I'm blown away by its political subversion perfect for the times It's as though Ovid's attempting to justify his exile and sees the writing on the wall in Tomis that here's an empire in decline The intro mentions Ovid's depiction of Romulus as a ruffian culpable for Remus's death while elevating Evander as a proto founder of Roma palindrome of Amor under threat from the emperor's morality initiatives Considering that Augustus aligned himself with Romulus it's a nasty move like suggesting that Reagan was senile thro

    Fasti PDF/EPUB Ì Hardcover fasti ebok, Fasti eBookThis is a lively prose translation of Ovid's Fasti his aetiological poem of the Roman festivals and notable dates originally written in elegiac couplets It is typically `Ovidian' witty erudite changeable in mood politically slippery densely intertextual but is probably not a good place to start for anyone unfamiliar with Ovid and Latin literature from the late Republic and Augustan period Catullus Virgil Livy especiallyThere are some fabulous set pieces here the marvellously comic story of Faunus trying to get into bed with Hercules and Omphale; the travels of Anna
