?|{?Ive a decent transation to the lines from Ovid's Amores 1.13.1-10
beginning "Iam super oceanum" ending "supprime lora manu."
I'm sure this inspired the famous John Donne poem "To the Rising Sun"? Any further information?



Thanks cadoro

No -could you give me a URL please?
I've tried the whole web-all I find are the slabs of Latin text but no translations or commentaries.A lot of adverts for books though.
(I do hope all our beloved reference libraries are not replaced by with computer terminals as so much will be lost forever.TYhe reference benefits of online sources are vastly over-rated) :(

Hmmm, the Perseus Project is pretty well known and should have been easy to locate with http://www.google.com.
