Times Literary Supplement - Llewelyn Morgan

Ovid's poem on the Roman calendar is now fully rehabilated as a text displaying the wittiest poet of antiquity at his lucid, subversive, scintillating best: a selective and much embellished account of the Roman ritual year, one book per month, either lost after the end of June, or aborted by the poet, ahead of the politically sensitive months names after Julius (Caesar) and Augustus.
