Metamorphoses

by Ovid, translated by A. D. Melville. Edited - and with notes by E. J. Kenney
£8.99   paperback  Oxford University Press (2008)

Metamorphoses by Ovid, translated by A. D. Melville. Edited - and with notes by E. J. Kenney The theme of the Metamorphoses is change and transformation, as illustrated in Graeco-Roman myth and legend. On this ostensibly unifying thread Ovid strings together a vast and kaleidoscopic sequence of brilliant narratives, in which the often paradoxical and always arbitrary fates of his human and divine characters reflect the never-ending flux and reflux of the universe itself.
