The critic, Cestius, noted that the thought came from ‘the fellow who filled our generation not only with lover’s manuals but lover’s sentiments’. Later in Contr. 27–8, Seneca quotes a criticism by Ovid of no less a poet than Virgil: Virgil had written, ‘all things were resting in the calm repose of night’ (Aen. 27), but as the declaimer and would-be poet Montanus reported, Ovid said the verse would be improved if the second half were cut out to read, ‘all things were of night’.

Indeed, Ovid seems to believe that all the emphasis with which poets and intellectuals had celebrated the values and virtues of the ancient Roman rural community, as if they were the only reliable guarantees of the survival of the nation, is by now outdated. He evidently thinks that there is a new public that intends to turn over a page with respect to the dark memories of the past, and in literature seeks pleasant entertainment. The success that he enjoyed seemed to show that he was right. But not everybody could share this attitude, and, on the contrary, the political and cultural scene of Augustan Rome was still evolving, and was to lead to different results.

But what do you think we swore by? 11): ‘I shall leave our country, flee and live in exile, enduring the deprivation as best I can with wretched and cruel patience.
