Description
Witty, erotic, skeptical, and subversive, Ovid has been a seminal presence in English literature from Chaucer to Ted Hughes. His Metamorphoses, a key source of ancient myths, inspired writers from Shakespeare to Ezra Pound. Dryden and Marlowe produced highly influential translations, and Pope, Swift, Shelley, and Matthew Arnold all wrote verse imbued with an Ovidian flavor. Our own century has responded deeply to Ovid's fascination with atrocity, abandoned women, constant change, extreme emotional states, and the human instinct for survival. This superb addition to the acclaimed Poets in Translation series brings together complete elegies from the Amores, Heroides, and Poems of Exile as well as many self-contained episodes from the longer works, vividly revealing both the sheer variety of Ovid's genius and the range of his impact on the English imagination.
