Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"The Metamorphoses of Ovid offers to the modern world such a key to the literary and religious culture of the ancients that it becomes an important event when at last a good poet comes up with a translation into English verse." --John Crowe Ransom

"... a charming and expert English version, which is right in tone for the Metamorphoses."
