Away from Rome

During the Rome of Augustus, Ovid’s painful exile takes him to the barbarian countries, and he learns about them and then comes to respect them. Lejos de Roma is a novel about exile, but it is also a love, philosophical, and historical poetic novel. Intelligent, sober, suggestive, executed with knowledge of the craft and talent, in an original prose, smooth and elegant.
