Product description

Review

A good translation in clear, dignified, poetic English (Prof Elaine Fantham, Princeton)

I think this version is terrific. The light enjambed English hexameters are a great success. The effect is properly propulsive (Prof A D Nuttall, Oxford)

Synopsis

Ovid's deliciously witty and exuberant epic starts with the creation of the world and brings together a series of ingeniously linked Greek and Roman myths and legends in which men and women are transformed, often by love - into flowers, trees, stones and stars. This new verse translation, in simple and swift English hexameters, allows Ovid's narrative to flow - pulling the reader along with it.
