Metapoesia e confluência genérica nos Amores de Ovídio / Metapoetry and generic influxes in Ovid s Loves

The aim of this thesis is to show how, in Loves, Ovid retook and reworked material from several sources to constitute his work. Older Seneca, in his Controuersiae (specially in II 2, 8) reveals the possibility of some influxes from school rethoric on the Ovid s poetry. In our analysis, we indicated that rhetoric is present like a mean of structure some elegies (like suasoriae) and also like a useful tool that helps us to understand the whole work (mainly, the constructed relation among auctor/opus/lector). We also demonstrate the presence of tipicals elements from other genres like epic, commedy, tragedy and even iambic poetry: Ovid seems to reveal that this "presence" is a factor that openly constitute his poetic labour. The generic confluence that results from these discursives relationships is more manifest in programmatic poems, with metapoetical character (through the topos of recusatio, for exemple), but is not missing at all from the others elegies. In this discursive elegiac constructum elaborated by Ovid in the Amores, the poet-lover persona considers about poetry while tell us about his amorous adventures with the puella persona who identify herserf with Elegy (cf. Am. III 1). In this sense, Ovid show us that, in his first work, his protagonist lives in a discursive world based on plurality, in wich experiences in loves (relationships) provides the composition of The Loves (Latin erotic elegy)
