In the books here compiled, Ovid portrays the evolution of an affair with a married woman named Corinna. It is unclear as to whether this is fictional or autobiographical, but it is obviously based... More > on the experiences of a sophisticated lover. The Ars Amatoria, published about 1 BCE, is a guidebook for seduction; it includes many tips and tricks which would not be out of place in a modern dating manual, while giving intimate vignettes of daily life in Ancient Rome. The first two books are written from a male point of view; the last book, which was probably written at a later date, is addressed to women. It is believed that this work, which celebrates extramarital sex, was one of the reasons that Ovid was banished by the Emperor Augustus, who was attempting to promote a more austere morality.< Less

Author Jean Ovide Bourdeau proposes that the 'Brave New World' has already begun; that its terminal objective is visible to those of us willing to open our eyes; and that it is on target.
He... More > further confronts the obvious intellectual syndrome of terror resulting from our mean-spirited attitude toward change generally. A fear, he tells us, that transmogrifies itself into series of local genocides and wars ultimately coalescing into planetary ones.
A most evident situation demonstrated in what this author calls our 'Ethical Disease Of Self-righteousness'.
A notion witnessed in callous and cowardly acts carried out by means of a 'social sacrament' of 'Absolute Obedience' to political programs meant to control those who dare disagree either with our 'Immaculate Perception' or that of the 'Special One' and 'Special Group' managing a society.< Less
All of Jean Ovide Bourdeau's previous works were, among other things, attempts at answering the savagery implied in the demotion of women as a group - a crucial element of domination everywhere in... More > the course of history in all cultures and ethnic groups to this day. This work although very different from all the others has been faithful to that same mission, purpose and objective. This novelized biography is a narrative demonstrating the singular callousness and cowardice within one dysfunctional family in particular and by extension within larger groups, as well as an attempt to highlight the wounding and crippling of a child’s sense of self-worth. Helen, the central character to this story, is an integral and admittedly small part of the worldwide savagery of which, the demotion of women has been a shameful, constituent and continuing part of our human history. Here then are the muffled cries of a child in extreme pain many years ago, now still suffering through severe panic attacks in her senior years.< Less
