Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. Ovid's main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love poems; the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile: the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae ex Ponto.

OVID, METAMORPHOSES 7
The Text is fully hyper-linked to the Mythological index and vice versa. Each Book is arranged in paragraphs, with each paragraph headed by the corresponding line reference in the Latin text. In the Metamorphoses Ovid retells stories from the Greek myths, arranging them in roughly chronological order, from the origins of the world to his own times. His charming and graceful versions, full of life and interest, express his humanist approach, his feeling for pathos, and his endless curiosity and delight in human affairs. Each tale involves a transformation of some kind, and the whole collection provided a potent source of motifs and images for later art, especially the paintings, sculpture, and verse of the Renaissance. The role of women in the myths seems particularly important to Ovid, and this aspect of his work, his interest in the female element, is reflected elsewhere in his poetry, and strongly influenced European culture.

Ovid: The Metamorphoses
And so they decided to ask the judgment of wise Tiresias. He knew both sides of love He therefore, taken up as the arbitrator for the playful dispute of the gods, took sides with Jove. Saturnia, they say, grieved more deeply than she should and than the issue warranted, and condemned her judge to perpetual blindness. But the almighty father for no god may undo what another god has done in return for his loss of sight gave Tiresias the power to know the future, lightening the penalty by the honour.
Please note that from now on I will combine the overview post with the prompt, deadline and optional verse form post. This seems to make more sense and keeps it all in one place. The focus of Book 7 firmly places itself on Medea and her psychology. The story of Jason and Medea in this book is considered one of the finest in Metamorphoses — a true mixture of poetic skill and psychological insight. The Argonauts arrive at Colchis where they ask for the return of the Golden Fleece.
They had visited Phineus , king of Thracian Salmydessus, living out a useless old age in perpetual blindness, and the winged sons of Boreas had driven the birdlike Harpies from the presence of the unhappy, aged man. At last, after enduring many trials, under their famous leader, Jason , they reached the turbulent river-waters of the muddy Phasis , in the land of Colchis. While they were standing before King Aeetes , of Aea, requesting the return of the Golden Fleece , taken from the divine ram that carried Phrixus , and while extreme terms were being imposed, involving daunting tasks, Medea , the daughter of the king, conceived an overwhelming passion for Jason. She fought against it for a time, but when reason could not overcome desire, she debated with herself. I wonder if this, or something, like this, is what people indeed call love?

Грег, - сказала она, и голос ее зазвучал мягче, хотя далось ей это нелегко. - Сегодня я не в духе. Меня огорчают твои разговоры о нашем агентстве как каком-то соглядатае, оснащенном современной техникой. Эта организация создавалась с единственной целью - обеспечивать безопасность страны.
Лицо его снизу подсвечивалось маленьким предметом, который он извлек из кармана. Сьюзан обмякла, испытав огромное облегчение, и почувствовала, что вновь нормально дышит: до этого она от ужаса задержала дыхание. Предмет в руке Стратмора излучал зеленоватый свет. - Черт возьми, - тихо выругался Стратмор, - мой новый пейджер, - и с отвращением посмотрел на коробочку, лежащую у него на ладони.
