Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The result is something quite extraordinary, a coherentand engaging treatment of the full corpus of Ovid’s writingin just under 130 pages . . . V. has produced an eminentlyreadable, highly engaging introduction to Ovid, one that speaks toexactly the audience she had envisaged, in a voice both accessibleand smart.”  (The Classical Review, 1 October2012)

“Aimed at the general reading public and at newcomers toOvid, her book is also a delight for experienced Ovidian scholars,providing an engaging, attractive, and thoughtful overview of thepoet and his works that shows why his oeuvre remains intellectuallyvaluable as well as an enjoyable read. Fluent and accessible, thevolume covers a great deal of ground with lightness of foot. Volktakes a thematic approach that cuts across individual works inproductive ways, but the simple titles of the chapters –‘Work’, ‘Life’, ‘Elegy’,‘Myth’, ‘Art’, ‘Women’,‘Rome’, ‘Reception’ – do notadequately convey a sense of the treasures that lie within theirpages.”  (Greece & Rome, 1 October 2012)
