The Heroides, written by Ovid some 2000 years ago, consists of a series of imaginary letters by legendary females of antiquity to their hapless lovers or husbands. The verse letters--purportedly penned by such heroines as Helen, Medea, Penelope, Dido & Sappho--are the outpourings of women who have been cruelly victimized, yet they are written in the witty & ironic tone for which Ovid is famous.

As a source of inspiration for other poets, as a model for the episotolary novel & the dramatic monologue, & as feminine footnotes to Greek prehistory, the letters have fascinated readers from Ovids time to the present.
