Elegies of Love Summary

Elegies of Love by Ovid

Near the end of his life, Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) began creating astonishingly an improvisatory and free life drawings. First published in a very limited edition in 1939, 31 of these drawings are paired here with selected Love Elegies from Ovid, one of Rodin's favorite authors. With Christopher Marlowe's glittering translation highlighting Ovid's work, Rodin's stunning art seems alive on the page in this unique volume.
