It was part circulates of it centered around the protector Marcus Valrius Messala Corvinus, but he seems to have been friend of poets I circulate in it of Maecenas. In Tristia, Ovdio mentioned friendships with Macer, Proprcio, Horcio and Bassus (it badly only knew Virgilio and Tibullus, another member I circulate of it of Maecenas whose he chose admired very). It was married three times and one divorced two times, for return of its thirty, but a marriage only resulted to it in descendants, of a son who gave grandsons to it. Its last wife was part of influential gens sulpicia and would go to help it during its exile in Tomis. Ovdio lived a life bohemian, passed through for the night Roman, admired as a great poet.

When its prestige arrived at the height, a decree with the sealing wax of Otvio Augustus, Emperor of Rome, commanded its deportation under accusation of immorality because of its book Ars Amatoria (the art To love), considered immoral. The Art To love (' ' Ars Amatoria' ' , in Latin) it is a series of three books of the Roman poet Ovdio. Writing in verses, has as subject the art of the seduction. First the two volumes of the series, written between 1 B.C. and 1 d.C., speak on conquering the hearts of the women and as to keep the loved one, respectively. The third book directed the women and teaching them as to attract the men, it was written later. The publication of the Art To love can have been the least in responsible part for Ovdio to have been banished of Rome for the August emperor. The celebration of the extramarital love can have been taken as one confronts intolerable to a regimen that promoted the values of the family. Therefore, for the modern reader, part of the interest in the poem is in the vivid registers of the daily life of Old Rome.
