Ovid, Aratus and Augustus: Astronomy in Ovid's Fasti
Cambridge University Press, 28. 3. 2000 - 226 strán (strany)
This book explores how astronomy and power were linked in the early Roman Empire. This is achieved by careful study of the Fasti by the Roman poet Ovid--a poem about the Roman calendar which contains many references to and stories about the stars. The author does not study Ovid's stars by using the techniques of mathematical astronomy but aims to combine the methodology of recent genre-based readings with a broad cultural perspective.
