'Ziogas' Ovid and Hesiod is not only an important contribution to Ovid's Metamorphoses, but also restores the Hesiodic Catalogue of Women to its rightful position in literary history.' Martina Hirschberger, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
'… a subtle and stimulating analysis of Ovid's reception of Hesiod … A considerable success, and forms a significant contribution to an area of research which shows no sign of exhaustion. This volume will serve as an indispensable reference point for the future study of Hesiod and Ovid.' Stella Alekou, The Classical Review
Argues that a profound engagement with Hesiod is central to Ovid's poetic world. An important contribution to the study of Ovid and the wider poetry of the Augustan age and an excellent case study in how the reception of previous traditions can become the driving force of poetic creation.
