Duration: 1:06:50 | Added: 20 Dec 2017
Episode 1 of VoxPop, where we explore the works and influence of the Roman poet Ovid, 2000 years after his death.

Welcome to the first episode of the new Classics podcast from the University of Oxford. We're hoping to bridge the gap between Classics at universities and Classics as experienced in our daily lives. Our first episode focuses on the Roman poet Ovid and asks: What does the myth of Narcissus have to do with Instagram? What does a Roman New Year's Party look like? Why did 12th Century Monks have a copy of Ovid's 'Art of Love'?
