Description
 
With his new translations, Classics expert Stephen Bertman presents & discusses some of the most beautiful, stirring expressions of erotic desire from the ancient worlds of Greece & Rome -- where men made love to goddesses & a woman’s face could launch a thousand ships. From Sappho’s feminist “Manifesto of Love” to the romantic interludes in Homer’s epic poems, “The Iliad” & “he Odyssey,” to Ovid’s indispensable manual of seduction, “The Art of Love,” this collection taps into the many kinds of passion that we still know today --new or seasoned, obsessive or unrequited, noble or illicit. “A gifted translation in fluent contemporary idiom.”
