Description
First published in 8 AD, Ovid's Metamorphoses synthesized many of the Greek and Roman myths into a single epic poem, and is rightly considered one of the great works of the ancient world. This prose translation culls some of the most vivid tales from Metamorphoses, including Perseus battling the hideous Gorgon, Medusa; the serpent's teeth, which upon being planted, turn into warriors; the vain weaver Arachne, transformed into a spider by a vengeful goddess; Narcissus, who falls in love with his own reflection; and the often disastrous love affairs of Zeus.
