Excerpt from Ovid, Vol. 2 of 6: Metamorphoses, With an English Translation

In the poet's own judgment, however, the poem was not finished, and, in his despair on learning of his impending exile, his burned his manuscript. He himself tells us of his motive for this rash act (tristia, I. 7) On departing from Rome, I burned this poem as well as many others of my works, either because I was disgusted with poetry which had proved my bane, or because this poem was still rough and unfinished. But fortunately copies Of this great work still survived in the hands of friends and in this letter he begs his friends now to publish it, and at the same time he begs his readers to remember that the poem has never received its author's finishing touches and so to be lenient in their judgment Of it.
