Representations in Art Greek and Roman mythology has provided an immeasurable inspiration to artists since antiquity. This new section, entitled Representations in art, discusses the pervasive influence of mythological themes on the visual arts from antiquity to the present day. From chapters 3 to 26 we highlight the most important contributions to the visual arts inspired by classical mythology. This section also contains hyperlinks to a wide selection of works available for viewing on the web, so that students may study this artistic legacy for themselves. (Chapters 1 and 2, since they are historical and theoretical in nature, are not represented.)

Today, Ovid is most famous for the Metamorphoses, a continuous mythological narrative in fifteen books written in the meter of epic. He is also known for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria ("The Art of Love") and Fasti. His poetry was much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, and greatly influenced Western art and literature. The Metamorphoses remains one of the most important sources of classical mythology today.[4]

The Heroides markedly reveal the influence of rhetorical declamation and may derive from Ovid's interest in rhetorical suasoriae, persuasive speeches, and ethopoeia, the practice of speaking in another character. They also play with generic conventions; most of the letters seem to refer to works in which these characters were significant, such as the Aeneid in the case of Dido and Catullus 64 for Ariadne, and transfer characters from the genres of epic and tragedy to the elegiac genre of the Heroides.[40] The letters have been admired for their deep psychological portrayals of mythical characters, their rhetoric, and their unique attitude to the classical tradition of mythology.[by whom?] They also contribute significantly to conversations on how gender and identity were constructed in Augustan Rome.[41] 076b4e4f54
