Amores is Ovid's first completed book, published in 16 BC. Amores was written in the elegiac distich. The book follows the model of the erotic elegyndash;perhaps the most common theme of the timendash;as treated before by Tibullus and Propertius, but often in a subversive and humorous way, with common motifs and devices being exaggerated to the point of absurdity. However, the Amores could also be considered a mock epic. This is a famous English verse translation made by Christopher Marlowe. - Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
