Summary/Abstract: We know Ovid as “tenerorum lusor amorum” – as how he defines himself. In Amores Ovid chants his beloved Corina. He is glad when his beloved answers to his feelings, suffers from her treason, longs to see her when they are separated. What happens to “the singer of gentle love” in time then? What is the reason for his sadness? The sadness is so strong that he calls his elegiac collection – Tristia. The exile to Tomis overwhelms his whole life. In 8 AD. Principe Octavian August punishes Ovid, sending him to exile in Tomis on the Black Sea coast. The reason for the punishment according to Ovid is “poetry and a mistake”.
