    It's a book and not just one poem and not just one theme. However, the general theme, one would assume, is love.

    The Art of Love? Oh dear, what can it possibly be about? Not 'love', obviously. Hmm, maybe marmalade-making, or Zen and motor maintenance. Impossible to tell. If only the title was more specific.

    The poems contain references to marriage, affairs and what love can do to people in general. The style is humorous, with many self-references to the poet (as usual for elegies). The second, and probably best known collection is called Ars Amatoria, the Art to Love.
