Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a very worthy addition to the distinguished series in which it appears, maintaining the very highest philological standards while also keeping the needs of students squarely in view; it is especially good to have textual matters discussed so often." Phoenix

"Hopkinson has provided one of the best available tools for reading and teaching the Metamorphoses, in terms of clarity, wit, and attention to poetic nuances." Classical World

"Ovid: Metamorphoses, Book VII, ed., Neil Hopkinson, represents a model edition both in content and explication of the text....This edition is certainly an ideal text for advanced undergraduates and has much to offer graduate students and scholars....The indexes are quite useful and the "passages discussed" section demonstrates the very great influence of Homer." Classical Bulletin
