1512 Fasti by OVID Mythology Roman Gods Latin Marsus Commentary Post Incunable
Impressum Mediolani : per Magistrum Ludouicum de Bebulco, Anno Domini Mcccccxij. die. xxi. Aprilis. [1512] - 1512 Fasti by OVID Mythology Roman Gods Latin Marsus Commentary Post Incunable ILLUSTRATED woodcuts SHAKESPEARE Influence An extremely rare post-incunable printing of Ovid’s The Fasti with commentary by Paolo Marsus. Marsi’s commentary on Ovid’s Fasti had a ‘supplemental influence’ on William Shakespeare’s ‘The Rape of Lucrece’ and primarly drew most of his material from Ovid for that work.While Marsus was most known for this commentary, originally written ca. 1460, he was also among other 15th-century poets who praised homoeroticism in their works. The Fasti (traditionally known in English as the "Book of Days") is a six-book Latin poem written by the Roman poet Ovid and published in 8 AD. Ovid is believed to have left the Fasti incomplete when he was exiled to Tomis by the emperor Augustus in 8 AD. Written in elegiac couplets and drawing on conventions of Greek and Latin didactic poetry, the Fasti is structured as a series of eye-witness reports and interviews by the first-person vates ("poet-prophet" or "bard") with Roman deities, who explain the origins of Roman holidays and associated customs—often with multiple aetiologies. Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC – AD 17), known as Ovid in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who lived during the reign of Augustus. He was a contemporary of the older Virgil and Horace with whom he is often ranked as one of the three canonical poets of Latin literature.
