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

Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

20 editions published between 1587 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 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
