Ovid's words are truly magical. "Heroides" is like an ancient collection of emails and text messeges from mythology's famous individuals, but it is letters instead. My favorite letters are "Paris to Helen", "Helen to Paris", and "Briseis to Achilles". This book is great for those who like to read ancient works and mythology fanatics. Hopefully more and more people will read this collection because it is not as well known as Ovid's other works such as "Metamorphoses" or "Amores". It really is a gem in a treasury of the many works of Ovid.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
