Review:

"With its jaunty, cunning and infernally clever rhyming couplets, Tom Payne's new translation is an utter treat from first to last...a sparkling foreword by Hephzibah Anderson...this effervescent Art of Love will be a lasting joy." ( Independent)

"This sums Ovid up: Cerebral and sensual; but wit first" (Ruth Padel)

"Rome's wittiest poet" ( Independent on Sunday)

"His wit, fluency and erotic treatises made him one of the most influential writers of ancient times" ( Independent)

"Much of Ovid's advice would not go amiss today" ( Guardian)
