Krisak has found a voice that accurately reflects that of his author, revealing the elegance of Ovid's skill in writing verses and the liveliness of his sensibility and subversive wittiness.

Ovid (c. 43 BC-AD17), a daring, original and passionate poet, has been an enduring influence on later poets. Amores is the work that first made Ovid famous, and infamous. A scandal in its day, and probably in part responsible for Ovid's banishment from Rome, Amores lays bare the intrigues and appetites of high society in the imperial capital at the time of Caesar Augustus. Clandestine sex, orgies and entertainments, fashion and violence, are among the subjects Ovid explores: the surface dazzle and hidden depths, secret liaisons and their public postures.
