A compelling new verse translation of Ovid's masterpiece by the award-winning translator of Homer's Iliad (1997) and Odyssey (2000), Virgil's Aeneid (2005), and Dante's Inferno (2008), accompanied by a brilliant Introduction that sets the poem in its historical, intellectual, political, and literary contexts. Includes a glossary and an index of transformations.

"This book will be welcome in every Ovid class taught in the US, especially among teachers and students attuned to the inseparability of language and substance in the Metamorphoses." -Barbara Boyd, Bowdoin College
