Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )
879 editions published between 1410 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 9,974 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.)
Heroides ; and, Amores by Ovid( Book )
369 editions published between 1815 and 2009 in 9 languages and held by 2,671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since it first appeared in 1961, this has been the standard critical edition of Ovid's love poems. For this new edition, the text has been thoroughly revised to take account of published scholarship and the further thoughts of the editor. Conjectures have been admitted to both text and apparatus criticus more freely than in the first edition. Punctuation has been improved, spelling has been normalized and the long poems have been paragraphed. The apparatus criticus now incorporates the readings of the important Berlin manuscript Hamilton 471 and such other readings formerly reported in the appendix of minor variants (now omitted) as are of critical significance; it has also been streamlined by the omission of explanatory material more conveniently accessible in commentaries

Ovid's Fasti by Ovid( Book )
254 editions published between 1477 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 1,953 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of the fullest and most enjoyable sources of information on Roman myth and religion, the Fasti is both a calendar of daily rituals and a witty sequence of stories recounted in a variety of styles and genres, comic, tragic, elegiac, epic and erotic. Yet many of them contain uncomfortable political echoes. Augustus tried to control his subjects by imposing his own version of history and annual cycle of festivals on them, but Ovid - banished to the Black Sea - brilliantly debunks the official heroes and power structures. (After celebrating the emperor as a Jupiter-on-earth, for example, he deliberately juxtaposes a story showing the king of gods as a savage rapist.) Endlessly playful, this is also a work of real integrity and courage, a superb climax to the career of one of Rome's greatest writers."--Jacket

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
The student's Ovid selections from the Metamorphoses by Ovid( )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ideally suited to intermediate to advanced college-level students, The Student's Ovid offers twenty-one selections from the Metamorphoses, with notes to aid translation and interpretation. The introduction includes an essay on Ovid's life and works, an outline of the structure of the Metamorphoses, and tips on Latin poetic forms and usage." "Accompanying each Latin passage is an introduction that provides background on the myths and their literary history, both in Ovid and in other classical authors. The detailed notes on each selection are designed to help students read and understand the Latin for themselves."--Jacket
Sorrows of an exile by Ovid( )
17 editions published between 1917 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 1,010 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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

The art of love by Ovid( Book )
69 editions published between 1625 and 2013 in English and Latin and held by 1,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 Roman's mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals love's timeless dilemmas and Ovid's enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic. From the Trade Paperback edition
