I should have kept reading wikipedia,

      The Amores is a poetic first person account
      of the poetic persona's love affair with an
      unattainable higher class girl, Corinna. It
      is not always clear if the author is writing
      about Corinna or a generic puella. Ovid
      does not assume a single woman as a subject
      of a chronical obsession of the persona of
      lover. The plot is linear, with a few artistic
      digressions such as an elegy on the death of

So, can we just how this ultimately translates to a strategy, or
are we expected to believe that this is just some playfulness?

I am not suggesting anything bad, but it might help with whatever
the "plan" is to just get on with it and not waste anyone's time
guessing how this party ends. I'm particularly interested in
what other references are coming down the pike.

So we got Cor (heart in Latin) that became Corinna (said "higher
class girl). Then Amores, defined above. I'm just super curious
now. :-)
