In all of ancient literature there is nothing quite like the Ars Amatoria, Ovid's guide to seduction. He devotes Book 3 to teaching the women of Augustan Rome how to find, catch, and keep a male lover. Along with generous portions of wit and absurdity, his text contains a wealth of cultural references, highlighting Rome's architecture, theatres, gladiatorial spectacles, temples, baths, men's and women's clothing, hairstyles, cosmetics, music, poetry-reading, letter-writing, games, slavery, parties, sexuality, and sex. This last and longest book of Ovid's most notorious work helps us see ancient Rome in a new light.
