New PDF release: Amores. Arte de amar. Sobre la cosmética del rostro

By P. Ovidio Nasón,Vicente Cristóbal López,José Javier Iso,José Luis Moralejo

ISBN-10: 8424913922

ISBN-13: 9788424913922

Este volumen consiste en los angeles parte erótica de los angeles producción ovidiana, que culmina los angeles tradición elegíaca latina de Catulo, Tibulo y Propercio y le pone un colofón de exquisita elegancia e inteligencia.
Nacido en el seno de una familia acomodada, Publio Ovidio Nasón (Sulmona, forty three a.C.-Tomos, 17 d.C.) disfrutó siempre de una situación desahogada que le permitió satisfacer su temprana vocación por los angeles poesía. En el eight d.C. Augusto le desterró a Tomis (actual Constanza, Rumania), y ordenó retirar sus libros de las bibliotecas públicas, a causa en parte de l. a. publicación de Ars Amatoria, que contravenía l. a. legislación moralista augústea, y en parte de un lance que no se ha aclarado. Murió al cabo de diez años de exilio.
El presente volumen recoge dos cimas del género elegíaco, que Ovidio cultivó en l. a. estela de autores como Catulo, Tibulo y Propercio, pero dotándolo de una personalidad y un estilo propios. Amores, que inauguró l. a. trayectoria poética del autor, plasma sus vivencias amorosas, librescas o reales, en torno a los angeles figura de l. a. amada perfect, de nombre Corina. Las vicisitudes a que se ve expuesto el poeta alternan con ejemplos y narraciones mitológicas, formando un abigarrado mosaico colmado de gracia y encanto. Arte de amar fue los angeles causa de sus desavenencias con Augusto y de su destierro a orillas del Mar Negro, pero a él debe Ovidio buena parte de su pervivencia y de su fortuna posterior. Este handbook para uso y disfrute del amor alecciona a hombres y mujeres en el arte de l. a. seducción y sobre cómo mantener el amor ya conseguido. El tono es elegante y puede rozar l. a. frivolidad, pero impera el buen gusto y difícilmente cabe considerar l. a. obra inmoral o escandalosa.
Sobre los angeles cosmética del rostro femenino, una colección de consejos cosméticos en verso para mujeres, suele incluirse en l. a. poesía erótica; celebra l. a. belleza y los angeles sofisticación y el cuidado del cuerpo que mejoran los angeles naturaleza. Remedios contra el amor, continuación de Arte de amar y escrita unos años después de ésta, aconseja sobre cómo sustraerse a las aflicciones de los angeles pasión amorosa, con gran lucidez psicológica y capacidad de comprensión.
