The palace of the sun turns out to be made entirely of precious metals, and far superior to anything featured on MTV's Cribs.; Ovid tells us that what was most stupendously awesome, however, was the artwork on the doors.

Ovid's exile did not stop him from writing poetry. The Tristia was written between 9 and 12 CE and is made up of five books, totaling over lines of elegiac couplets.

The first book was written on the way to Tomi. The second book is nearly lines long, a single pleading elegy written in the poet's own defense, addressed to Emperor Augustus.

In Book XIV, Ovid continues to veer away from Virgil’s version of the Aeneid. Most noticeably, he does not develop Aeneas’s love affair with Dido. We might expect Ovid to make something of the relationship.

Virgil devotes more than lines to it. But Ovid covers it in four lines, and he does not even mention Dido by name.

Ovid was a Roman poet renowned for his verse’s technical accomplishment. His best-known work is the Metamorphoses, a collection of mythological and legendary stories, told in chronological order from the creation of the universe to the death and deification of Caesar.

Through the Metamorphoses, Ovid gave many Greek legends their definitive. Summary. The Greeks gather to decide whether Ulysses or Ajax is more worthy of receiving Achilles' armor. Ajax represents his case first, emphasizing his role in battling Hector and his status as Achilles' cousin.

Ajax suggests that the arms be set in the middle of the enemy's ranks and whoever can recover them be allowed to keep them. Ovid’s next poem, the Medicamina Faciei, a fragmentary work on women’s beauty treatments, preceded the Ars Amatoria, the Art of Love, a parody of didactic poetry (including advice such as “do not forget her birthday”), and a three-book manual about seduction and intrigue, which has been dated to 2 CE (Books 1–2 go back to 1 BCE).
