By: Publius Ovidius Naso (Ovid) ; Translated by A.S. Kline

Classic Literature

Excerpt: There is a myth that is at the heart of the myths. It is a myth of Crete, but annexed to a myth of Athens, and it contains a metaphor, a set of metaphors, about art. Beautiful in itself, and ultimately mysterious in the power of its associations it refers beyond itself to the whole artistic, perhaps also the whole scientific project. The central myth is about Theseus, and Ariadne and the Labyrinth at Cnossos, but parallel to it and interwoven with it is the myth of Daedalus, the maker.

Excerpt: Under the Mirabeau flows the Seine And our amours Shall I remember it again Joy always followed after Pain Comes the night sounds the hour The days go by I endure Hand in hand rest face to face While underneath The bridge of our arms there races So weary a wave of eternal gazes Comes the night sounds the hour The days go by I endure Love vanishes like the water?s flow Love vanishes How life is slow And how Hope lives blow by blow Comes the night sounds the hour ...

Eighty-Eight Selected Poems

By: Charles Baudelaire ; Translated by A.S. Kline
