Ovid Among the Conspiracy Theorists

Show Summary Details


This chapter seeks to stir up some of the murkiness of the exile poetry again, to blur the boundary between respectable and nonrespectable interpretation, and even to give a little of Ovid back to the conspiracy theorists. The approach will be oblique rather than head on: the chapter is built around a reading of the only elegy in the Tristia which is not overtly concerned with the exiled poet’s own life.

Keywords: Ovid; Tristia; exile poetry; elegy
