Description

Our second panel, “Ovid in the Courts,” considers the influence both on courtiers themselves and on those who aspired to courtly rank. Ovid's amatory works were distilled into models of courtly love, and his epic tales were adapted into chivalric chansons. Vernacular receptions of Ovid’s works proliferated throughout the late Medieval period, and these translations extend beyond mere reproduction from one language to another to furnish us with rich sources for studies of cross-cultural and cross-generic literary metamorphoses. How was Ovid performed?
