ABOUT THIS BOOK

Metamorphoses ("transformations") is a Latin narrative poem in fifteen books by the Roman poet Ovid, describing the history of the world from its creation to the deification of Julius Caesar within a loose mythico-historical framework. Completed in AD 8, it is recognized as a masterpiece of Golden Age Latin literature. One of the most-read of all classical works during the Middle Ages, the Metamorphoses continues to exert a profound influence on Western culture.

Meet the Author

Publius Ovidius Naso (20 March 43 BC – AD 17/18), known as Ovid in the English-speaking world, was a Roman poet who is best known as the author of the Metamorphoses, a mythological hexameter poem. He is considered a master of the elegiac couplet, and is traditionally ranked alongside Virgil and Horace as one of the three canonic poets of Latin literature.

The scholar Quintilian considered him the last of the canonical Latin love elegists. His poetry, much imitated during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages, decisively influenced European art and literature and remains as one of the most important sources of classical mythology.

Absolutely brilliant. Ovid is considered by many to exemplify the poetic purity and power of the Latin languages. These superb translations do justice to the original language.

Terrible translation. The literal latin is not in a rhyming meter, therefore I believe that the translation is not accurate. Otherwise this is the complete and utter fulfillment of latin poetry.
