This bestseller now features 277 more lines of Ovid! The updated version includes Metamorphoses I.1-88 and X.1-85 and Amores 2.19 and 3.12.


The source of Ovid's enduring appeal is obvious: his Amores are written with the wit and humor—and sometimes the regret—of one who has seen love firsthand. His Metamorphoses, an epic tale of transformations, is the sparkling work of a consummate storyteller.


This edition is organized to facilitate reading, comprehension, and enjoyment of a poet whose sometimes startling voice rings as clear and true today as it did in his own day.
