A masterpiece of Western culture, The Metamorphoses is the first attempt to link all the Greek myths in a cohesive whole to the Roman myths of Ovid's day. In this modern translation, Gregory turns his own poetic gifts toward a deft reconstruction of Ovid's ancient themes. Revised reissue.
Ovid Publius Ovidius Naso (43 bce ce 17 or 18) was born into a wealthy Roman family and became the most distinguished poet of his time. He died in exile on the Black Sea, far from Rome and his literary life.
