However, it was undoubtedly his three major collections of erotic poetry [: Heroids, Amores and Ars Amatoria] that were really celebrated. They were simply brilliant and inspired. He also earned fame as the author of the Metamorphoses; a mythological hexameter poem, which is believed to have inspired some of literature’s finest authors such as; Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dante, and Milton.
His first recitation was around 25 BC, when Ovid was 18. Initially, Ovid wrote in the elegiac tradition of Roman poets Sextus Propertius and Albius Tibullus, both of whom he revered. Ovid’s Amores are erotic poems based on Corinna – an imaginary woman; detailing Ovid’s love for her. Ovid went on to write the Metamorphoses, in 15 books; famed as a manual of Greek mythology. His Fasti is a popular, calendar telling the different Roman festivals and the myths associated with each. Ovid’s works during his exile are infused with melancholy and sadness and mainly talk about his longing for his former life and appeals to be released. .
