Translated from the Latin by Dana Svobodová
A new translation of the famous didactic poem of Publius Ovidius Naso, giving instructions on how to face unhappy and hopeless love in a most efficient way. A playful text oscillating between parody and a seriously meant message thus embodies a deliberate opposing pole to Naso?s poetic work Ars Amatoria. The book contains both the Czech translation and the Latin original.
