¶ The Tristia (“Sorrows” or “Lamentations”) is a collection of letters written in elegiac couplets by the poet Ovid during his exile from Rome. Despite five books of his copious bewailing of his fate, the immediate cause of Augustus's banishment of the most acclaimed living Latin poet to Pontus in AD 8 remains a mystery. In addition to the Tristia, Ovid wrote another collection of elegiac epistles on his exile, the Epistulae ex Ponto. He spent several years in the outpost of Tomis and died without ever returning to Rome.
The Tristia was once viewed unfavourably in Ovid's oeuvre, but has become the subject of scholarly interest in recent years.
