Metamorphoses : the Arthur Golding translation, 1567 by Ovid( Book )

13 editions published between 1965 and 2000 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps the greatest ancient compilation of Western myths, Ovid's Metamorphoses includes the stories of Jove, Apollo, Mercury, and Venus. This first English translation, originally published in 1567, introduced Ovid's work to Shakespeare and inspired many of his plays. Golding's version brings to English Ovid's history of the Trojan War and the rise of Rome, and ends with the story of Julius Caesar. Also included are the famous myths of Pyramus and Thisbe, Jason and Medea, Orpheus, Hercules, and Pygmalion. A glossary of names and places and footnote definitions of archaic words make the text accessible to all readers

On benefits by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( )

23 editions published between 1578 and 1974 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BCE 65 CE) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, dramatist, statesman, and advisor to the emperor Nero, all during the Silver Age of Latin literature. The Complete Works of Lucius Annaeus Seneca is a fresh and compelling series of new English-language translations of his works in eight accessible volumes. Edited by world-renowned classicists Elizabeth Asmis, Shadi Bartsch, and Martha C. Nussbaum, this engaging collection restores Seneca whose works have been highly praised by modern authors from Desiderius Erasmus to Ralph Waldo Emerson to his rightful place among the classical writers most widely studied in the humanities. On Benefits, written between 56 and 64 CE, is a treatise addressed to Seneca s close friend Aebutius Liberalis. The longest of Seneca s works dealing with a single subject how to give and receive benefits and how to express gratitude appropriately On Benefits is the only complete work on what we now call gift exchange to survive from antiquity. Benefits were of great personal significance to Seneca, who remarked in one of his later letters that philosophy teaches, above all else, to owe and repay benefits well. --

Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

20 editions published between 1587 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This translation of Ovid was acclaimed by Ezra Pound as "the most beautiful book in the language (my opinion and I suspect it was Shakespeare's)." Ovid's deliciously witty and poignant epic starts with the creation of the world and brings together a series of ingeniously linked myths and legends in which men and women are transformed - often by love - into flowers, trees, stones, and stars. Golding's robustly vernacular version was the first major English translation and decisively influenced Shakespeare, Spenser, and the character of English Renaissance writing."--Jacket
