Ovid claims that there are a hundred reasons why he is always in love and in reading Amores Book 2, we shall discover some of these reasons. But we shall also encounter a dead parrot, his girl Corinna's jealousy and her abortion, and Ovid's wish to be a signet ring. Anyone with a sound basic knowledge of Latin will be able to cope with Ovid's verse. Participants will be encouraged to contribute to translating the text, discussing its contents and style and so enjoy a weekend of Ovid's wit and charm.
