"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.)

102 editions published between 1851 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 4,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Composed in Latin in the early years of the first century by the Roman poet Ovid, the "Metamorphoses" presents a collection of amazing tales of transformation based on Greek mythology and legend. Michael Simpson's prose translation of Ovid's masterpiece in the rapid and direct American idiom catches the swiftness and clarity of the Latin original. His introduction sketches the poet's life, describes his extant works, discusses his unusual exile to the west coast of the Black Sea (where he died), and provides a useful context for reading the "Metamorphoses." Simpson has also prepared extensive endnotes that serve as mini-essays, illuminating the manifold aspects of the poem and offering commentary and interpretation that enable readers to enter Ovid's magical world and enjoy its richness

In the first century a.d., Ovid, author of the groundbreaking epic poem Metamorphoses, came under severe criticism for The Art of Love, which playfully instructed women in the art of seduction and men in the skills essential for mastering the art of romantic conquest. In this remarkable translation, James Michie breathes new life into the notorious Romanʹs mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals loveʹs timeless dilemmas and Ovidʹs enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic

An Oxford Classical texts edition of Ovid's Metamorphoses has been planned for nearly a century, but earlier efforts by D.A. Slater and Franco Munari were not completed, largely because of the size and complexity of the manuscript tradition. Building on their work and that of many other scholars, R.J. Tarrant has produced a text with a broader manuscript foundation than any previous modern edition. The early fragments and oldest manuscripts have been freshly collated, and the twelfth-century manuscripts have been fully drawn on for the first time; as a result many potentially original readings that had been attributed to later manuscript sources or even to modern scholars can now be located in the mainstream of the medieval tradition. In establishing the text, Tarrant has been more generous than his immediate predecessors in adopting and recording scholarly conjectures, among them a number of emendations not previously published. In the matter of interpolated verses Tarrant has taken a more sceptical view of the transmitted text than editors of the last century; some of the lines he has bracketed had been suspected by earlier editors (especially Nicolaas Heinsius), but other proposed deletions are new. In the apparatus the editor has often noted that a rejected variant or conjecture offers a plausible alternative to the text printed, thereby calling attention to the many places where the original reading remains open to question. Offering a wealth of new information and ideas, this edition will be indispensable for all future study of Ovid's masterwork

With the Art of Love or the Fasti. This is poetry as accomplished as anything he had written in happier days and demands no less critical respect. For this new translation of Ovid's poems, all of which are in elegiacs, Alan Melville has used the same system of rhyming stanzas that he evolved so successfully for Ovid's Love Poems. Here again he has reproduced the virtuosity, elegance, and wit of the original, and presents a collection of poems in which the reader will
Ovid's Fasti by Ovid ( Book )
22 editions published between 1757 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BCE-17 CE), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus and was banished to the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. One of his few surviving works, the Fasti is a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half. It is believed that Ovid left the Fasti incomplete when he was exiled to Tomis

Metamorphoses : the Arthur Golding translation, 1567 by Ovid ( Book )
11 editions published between 1965 and 2000 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Dust Jacket: Arthur Golding's translation of the Metamorphoses is "the most beautiful book in the language"--So Ezra Pound has been assuring us for half a century. It is certainly true that from the time of its publication in 1567 until a decade after the death of Shakespeare it was the English Ovid: one of the most popular and influential books during the greatest period of our literature. Four hundred years later, it still has more verve and gusto, is more plain fun to read, than any other version in English. The two hundred and fifty stories of the Metamorphoses-some only a few lines long, some several hundred-involve the theme of transformation. They show us men and women-as a reward, as a punishment, as an escape-becoming animal or vegetable or mineral, or in a few cases even decorations in outer space. There are many tones, from the homely sweetness of Philemon and Baucis to the frenzy of Myrrha's incestuous love for her father; from the little idyll of Pan and Syrinx to the rape and cannibalism of Philomela's tragedy-of which T.S. Eliot has made a key symbol in The Waste Land. Moving at breathless speed, thanks largely to "dissolves" not unlike those of surrealist cinema, the episodes range from the very beginning of the world to a famous political assassination of the poet's own day. This edition makes available for the first time in an inexpensive modern edition the complete text of Golding's 1567 original. For the first time too we have the long-needed and long-desired footnotes on unfamiliar words, together with an identifying index of names and places. By way of introduction, Mr. Nims has written a lively and informative study of the Metamorphoses and its history, of Ovid's artistry as poet and Golding's as translator, and indeed of the whole problem of translating poetry, so much discussed today in and outside the universities

Ovid's Metamorphoses by Ovid ( Book )

"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
