From the Publisher"Laurel Fulkerson, in this original and intriguing new study, has granted Ovid's unique collection of epistles written by legendary women the benefit of her critical eye and scholarly acumen." - Teresa R. Ramsby, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
"This is a book for graduate students and scholars, it should arouse much interest in its readers. Fulkerson covers all the fifteen Heroides, using each chapter to compare poems and to present a special reading. It was a pleasure for me to read this well-printed volume." - William S. Anderson, University of California, Berkeley
"Fulkerson's treatment of the Heroides is innovative in its attribution of a certain degree of power to these female characters, as readers and writers in an imaginary literary circle...[the] study if thorough, both in its knowledge of Ovidian scholarship and its close reading of the text. Her creative approach makes this work, bringing to life what was for a long time dismissed as Ovid's juvenile poetic venture."
