Read full description of the books:

Fastos es un poema didáctico sobre el calendario romano, el origen de los nombres de los meses y de ceremonias, festivales y cultos y la incidencia de la astronomía en todos ellos. Para estas explicaciones, Ovidio recurre a una gran variedad de mitos y narraciones históricas:: Jano, Venus, Juno, Marte, Júpiter se dan la mano con Numa, Servio y Lucrecia. En su explicación del calendario juliano, Ovidio avanza por orden cronológico, mes a mes, día a día, y conforme progresa relata las circunstancias que rodean a las instituciones romanas. A pesar de que Ovidio trata hechos recientes como la victoria de Augusto en Accio (3) y pone de manifiesto su patriotismo y devoción a los cultos, hace propaganda de la política augústea y exalta al emperador, la composición de los Fastos quedó interrumpida abruptamente a raíz del destierro que le impuso Augusto en el 8 d.C., debido a los célebres carmen (Arte de amar) y error (una culpa nunca aclarada). En el exilio de Tomis, Ovidio abandonaría por completo los Fastos y se consagraría a las Tristes y las Pónticas.
Introducción, traducción y notas de B. Segura Ramos. Revisada por A. Ruiz de Elvira.

Read information about the author

Ebook Fastos read Online! Publius Ovidius Naso (20 March 43 BCE – CE 17/18), known as Ovid (/ˈɒvɪd/) in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet best known for the Metamorphoses, a 15-book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for collections of love poetry in elegiac couplets, especially the Amores ("Love Affairs") and Ars Amatoria ("Art of Love"). His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature. The Metamorphoses remains one of the most important sources of classical mythology.

Ovid is traditionally ranked alongside Virgil and Horace, his older contemporaries, as one of the three canonic poets of Latin literature. He was the first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus, and the Imperial scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the Latin love elegists. He enjoyed enormous popularity, but in one of the mysteries of literary history he was sent by Augustus into exile in a remote province on the Black Sea, where he remained until his death. Ovid himself attributes his exile to carmen et error, "a poem and a mistake", but his discretion in discussing the causes has resulted in much speculation among scholars.

Ovid's prolific poetry includes the Heroides, a collection of verse epistles written as by mythological heroines to the lovers who abandoned them; the Fasti, an incomplete six-book exploration of Roman religion with a calendar structure; and the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto, two collections of elegies in the form of complaining letters from his exile. His shorter works include the Remedia Amoris ("Cure for Love"), the curse-poem Ibis, and an advice poem on women's cosmetics. He wrote a lost tragedy, Medea, and mentions that some of his other works were adapted for staged performance.
