Meet the Author

Publius Ovidius Naso (43 B.C. - c. 17 A.D.) was an important Roman epic poet, author of several classical collection of poety, including THE METAMORPHOSES, THE HEROIDES, AMORES, and ARS AMORITA. Born in the Appenines east of Rome to an Equestrian family, Ovid studied rhetoric in Rome and initially pursued a career in law. He abandoned barritry at age 18, becoming a very popular poet within a few years. Ovid eventually offended emperor Augustus and was exiled to Tomis in A.D. 8 where he ceased work.

    If I could, I would leave a zero star rating. I searched in the ISBN number of the book I required for my college course. I needed the Mandelbaum translation of The Metamorphosis of Ovid. However. I found this page and saw, to my delight, that there was an ebook version of THIS book. THIS version. I happily bought it, but was shocked to find out that the translator is different. It gives NO INDICATION of being a different translation. Barnes and Noble, I am extremely dissatisfied. You need to remove the ebook buyable version from this particular book unless it is the translation of Mendelbaum. I can't even return it, and it's your fault that this mix-up was made.

    Hard to read due to format

    This is supposed to be poetic style but it's written out on plain paragraphs. Seek out Ian Johnston's translation, it's much easier to read and heavily annotated with extensive end notes.
