No one else does. The ninth book focuses on Heracles and the incestuous Byblis. The poem opens by advising Livia not to try to hide her sad emotions and contrasts Drusus' military virtue with his death. Incense is more important to them than compassion. Cur imiprudenti cognita culpa mihi?

Book 3 in 14 poems focuses on Ovid's life in Tomis. By writing the Metamorphoses in dactylic hexameter, the meter of epic, Ovid intentionally invited comparisons with the greatest Roman poet of his age, Virgil, who had written the Ovids Tristia book the Ovids Tristia book. Of his three marriages the first two were short-lived, but his third wife, of whom he speaks with respect and affection, remained constant to him until his death. In the age of iron, however, nothing is sacred. This is true, but poets often have reasons for what they indite which do not lie on the surface and can only be at best conjectural. This being true of the THstia we may feel grateful to the Oxford Committee for selecting as matter for examination the Second Book, that is to say, tiie one section of the 2'ridia which presents a continuous and uninterrupted narrative, and one less deformed by personal and em- bittered feeling.

The Iliad itself is the story of a war undertaken to revenge a husband upon the paramour of his wife. The first Ovids Tristia book causes Apollo to fall in love, and the second arrow makes the object of his love, Daphne, flee. He was later known as Augustus. He defends his work and his life with equal vigor, appealing to the many poets who had written on the same themes as he—among them AnacreonSapphoCatullus and even Homer. No line in this manuscript teaches about love. The former was nearly complete, the latter half finished, when his life was shattered by a sudden and crushing blow.
