The etymologies of Isidore of Seville by Isidore( Book )

in French and Latin and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work is the first complete English translation of the Latin Etymologies of Isidore, bishop of Seville (c. 560-636). Isidore compiled the work between c. 615 and the early 630s and it takes the form of an encyclopedia, arranged by subject matter. It contains much lore of the late classical world beginning with the Seven Liberal Arts, including Rhetoric, and touches on hundreds of topics ranging from the names of God, the terminology of the law, the technologies of fabrics, ships, and agriculture, to the names of cities and rivers, the theatrical arts, and cooking utensils. Isidore provides etymologies for most of the terms he explains, finding in the causes of words the underlying key to their meaning. This book offers a highly readable translation of the twenty books of the Etymologies, one of the most widely known texts for a thousand years from Isidore's time."--Jacket

Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ovid is, after Homer, the single most important source for classical mythology. The Metamorphoses, which he wrote over the six-year period leading up to his exile from Rome in 8 a.d., is the primary source for over two hundred classical legends that survived to the twenty-first century. Many of the most familiar classical myths, including the stories of Apollo and Daphne and Pyramus and Thisbe, come directly from Ovid. The Metamorphoses is a twelve-thousand-line poem, written in dactylic hexameters and arranged loosely in chronological order from the beginning of the universe's creation to the Augustan Rome of Ovid's own time. The major theme of the Metamorphoses, as the title suggests, is metamorphosis, or change. Throughout the fifteen books making up the Metamorphoses, the idea of change is pervasive. Gods are continually transforming their own selves and shapes, as well as the shapes and beings of humans. The theme of power is also ever-present in Ovid's work. The gods as depicted by the Roman poets are wrathful, vengeful, capricious creatures who are forever turning their powers against weaker mortals and half-mortals, especially females. Ovid's own situation as a poet who was exiled because of Augustus's capriciousness is thought by many to be reflected in his depictions of the relationships between the gods and humans."--Http://www.enotes.com/metamorphoses-of-ovid (Jan. 24, 2011.)

Les Metamorfosis by Publi Ovidi Nasó( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obra cabdal de la literatura llatina i pou inesgotabable d'històries que han trenat la imaginació i la iconografia del món occidental, les "Metamorfosis" d'Ovidi continuen inspirant creadors i lectors fins als nostres dies. Des de la creació del món fins a la divinització de l'emperador August, s'hi despleguen alguns dels mites i llegendes més coneguts de l'Antiguitat: Dèdal i Ícar, Píram i Tisbe, Pigmalió, Narcís, Perseu i l'Andròmeda, la caiguda de Troia... Erudit i divertit alhora, dramàtic i enjogassat, les "Metamorfosis" són la millor porta d'entrada a la mitologia dels grecs i dels romans
