Having led a glittering, urban life in Rome but then subsequently exiled in AD 8 on account of ‘carmen et error’ (a poem and a mistake), the life and works of the Roman poet Ovid have caught the Western imagination in literature, art and music ever since. We shall explore his poetry, in Latin, using interlinear translations and reflect on its influence on artists and writers over the past two-thousand years.

No knowledge of Latin required!
