Betty Rose Nagle's elegant translation brings Ovid's poetic calendar of the Roman religious year to a new generation of students and scholars. Covering January through June, the Fasti was written at the end of the first century B.C. and includes religious festivals, historical anniversaries, and astronomical lore. A valuable source of information about the Roman calendar, it complements Ovid's masterwork, the Metamorphoses. Here we see the interwoven strands of Roman and Greek legendsNthe rape of Proserpina; Romulus and Remus; Arion's rescue by a dolphin. Nagle's introduction places the Fasti in the context of Ovid's life and work, Roman literature, and the reign of the first Roman emperor, Augustus. Both scholarly and readable, this new translation will interest the general reader as well as students of classics, religion, myth, and folklore.
