The Metamorphoses

Ovid, E. J. Kenney, intro.; A. D. Melville, trans.

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1998

Metamorphoses--the best-known poem by one of the wittiest poets of classical antiquity--takes as its theme change and transformation, as illustrated by Greco-Roman myth and legend. Melville's new translation reproduces the grace and fluency of Ovid's style, and its modern idiom offers a fresh understanding of Ovid's unique and elusive vision of reality.
