Ers such as Salman Rushdie and Italo Calvino have found a living source in Ovid's work Charles Martin combines a close fidelity to Ovid's text with verse that catches the speed and liveliness o. Throughout all ages If poets have vision to prophesy truth I shall live in myFame Thus the closing lines of Ovid's Metamorphoses He was certainly right in his statement but it feels like an appropriate irony that his work has been transformed metamorphosed over the millennia since he wrote his compilation of Roman and Greek literature I have known most of the collected stories since my early days at university but only now finished reading the Metamorphoses as a whole from cover to cover and my impression is that Ovid's fame is mostly due to the brilliant interpretation of his text by European visual artists over the centuries Through the metamorphosis from text to visual art Ovid has stayed famous Bernini's Apollo and Daphne symbolises it accurately than any other myth retold in the collection a god chasing a young nymph who slowly transforms into a laurel tree to avoid sexual assault only to find herself the eternal symbol of Apollo's high status and the honorable prize for literary or artistic fame Ovid is resting on those laurels wearing his Apollonian laurel wreath as is Bernini who can proudly compete with Pygmalion in the skill with which he made the marble leaves come alive transforming hard stone into delicate artI knew I would be going on a tour through art history when I embarked on the Ovid journey and I enjoyed every minute of it often reading with a pile of art books next to me As a pleasant extra surprise I found myself revisiting several favourite Greek plays from a different narrative perspective focusing on the transforming powers of dramatic storytelling rather than on unity of time place and action Hercules' story unfolded from a new angle as did many of the Trojan and Minoan adventuresAfter finishing Virgil's The Aeneid a couple of months ago the short summary of Aeneas' adventures was welcome as well Generally speaking the Metamorphoses can be viewed as a Who's Who in the Ancient Roman and Greek cosmos with a clear bias in favour of the Roman empire and its virtues There are fewer long fight scenes than in the Iliad or the Aeneid which makes it a pleasant less repetitive narrative once the Centaurs and Lapiths are done with their violent dutiesAfter decades of immersing myself in the world of ancient mythology I found the Metamorphoses to be an easy and lighthearted reading experience When I read excerpts from it during my early university years I struggled to recognise and place all those famous characters It is a matter of being able to see the context and background knowledge is a clear advantageI just wish my Latin was strong enough it must be a special pleasure to read it in originalClaude opus

Metamorphoseon libri XVF the original Martin's Metamorphoses will be the translation of choice for contemporary readers in English This volume also includes endnotes and a glossary of people places and personificatio. “Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind and has given up worrying once and for all”― Ovid MetamorphosesOvid the David Bowie of Latin literature I chewed on this book of myth poems the entire time I was tramping around Rome I was looking for the right words to describe my feelings about it It isn't that I didn't like it It is an uneuivocal masterpiece I'm amazed by it I see Ovid's genes in everything paintings sculptures poems and prose He is both modern and classic reverent and wicked lovely and obscene all at once It is just hard to wrestle him down To pin my thoughts about 'the Metamorphoses' into words Structure really fails meThat I guess is the sign for me of a book's depth or success with me It makes me wish I could read it in the original form I'm not satisfied with Dante in English I want him in Italian I'm not satisfied with Ovid in English I want to experience his poetry his playfulness his wit in LatinI still prefer the poetry of Homer and Dante but Ovid isn't embarrassed by the company of the greats; so not Zeus or Neptune but maybe Apollo
