Liebesbriefe Heroides

Author: Ovid
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 9783050091778
Release Date: 2011-01-01
Genre: History

Dieses Werk, nach den "Amores" Ovids zweite Elegiendichtung, ist eine Sammlung von 21 fiktiven Liebesbriefen zumeist von berühmten Frauen des Altertums, in denen sie ihren fernen Geliebten ihr Leid klagen. So schreibt etwa Penelope an Ulixes, Briseis an Achilles, Dido an Aeneas, Medea an Jason oder Sappho an Phaon. Ovid hat für eine zweite Ausgabe die Sammlung um den pikanten Briefwechsel von Paris mit Helena, von Acontius mit Cydippe und, am bekanntesten, von Leander mit Hero erweitert. Seine Charakterbilder, in denen sich auf kleinem Raum ganze Liebesromane spiegeln, sind nicht nur literarische Meisterstücke, sondern auch überzeugende Dokumente mitfühlender Phantasie. Viele Themen der Liebe - Eifersucht, Trennungsschmerz, quälende Erinnerungen, Treue und Verblendung, die verzehrende Sehnsucht nach dem Geliebten - sind in die 21 Gedichte eingegangen und machen die "Heroides" zu einem bedeutsamen poetischen Dokument in der Geschichte menschlicher Liebe. Die Ausgabe macht den gesamten überlieferten Text in neu revidierter Fassung zugänglich.

Der XII Heroidenbrief

Author: Ovide
Publisher: BRILL
ISBN: 9004108009
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Literary Criticism

This volume contains a critical edition of Ovid's epistle of Medea to Jason, together with the fragments of his lost tragedy "Medea," including "testimonia," Introduction and commentary deal with matters of language, "realia," textual, authenticity, and literary criticism. An examination of the arguments recently put forward against the authenticity of the 12th letter yielded that it cannot be denied Ovidian authorship. Numerous parallels illustrate in particular Ovid's handling of his literary antecedents, notably Euripides and Apollonios. Intensive discussions are also given to questions of genre, epistolary form, influence of elegy and rhetoric, the letter's structure and its position in the collection. The "appendix" offers a convenient critical summary of the research on Ovid's "Medea," together with an extensive commentary on the two fragments.
