From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
- "Odi et amo. quare id faciam, fortasse requiris?
- nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior."
- I hate and I love. Why do I do this, perhaps you ask?
- I do not know, but I feel it happen and it is excruciating.
Its declaration of conflicting feelings "I hate and I love" (in Latin, Odi et amo) is renowned for its force and brevity.
The meter of the poem is the elegiac couplet.
