The Cambridge Companion to Ovid (Cambridge Companions to Literature)

by

The Cambridge Companion to Ovid (Cambridge Companions to Literature) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A companion to one of the greatest writers of classical antiquity, and arguably the single most influential ancient poet for post-classical literature and culture, is long overdue. Chapters by leading authorities discuss the backgrounds and contexts for Ovid, the individual works, and his influence on later literature and art. Coverage of essential information is combined with exciting new critical approaches.

Book News Annotation:

Scholars of classical literature place Ovid's turn-of-the-era work within the history of ancient Roman culture and literature, and explore some of the many ways his texts have been used by later writers and artists. The collection serves both an introduction to his work and a set of examples for critiquing it.

Accessible but excitingly new critical handbook to one of the greatest writers of classical antiquity.
