Reviews

In many ways Pollard, a wunderkind who wrote her first poetry collection while still at school, is a good match for the equally precocious Ovid...these are lively versions, seasoned with both agony and irony, reanimating Ovid's originals. -- Josephine Balmer * The Times *
Ovid died in exile, booted out of Rome for what he described as carmen et error - a poem and a mistake. These letters remind us that he, of all Latin love poets, understood the plight of the person left behind, waiting for news. He knew that even bad news was less excruciating than no news. And this breezy, witty translation should give new readers the chance to share this understanding. -- Natalie Haynes * The Guardian *
