    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleComplex subversive and sophisticatedOvid was ignored by classical scholars for a long time as being frivolous and just not serious enough He has now been rehabilitated and Metamorphoses is recognised as being one of the most complex sophisticated and problematic poems of the age of Augustus as well as one of the wittiest and most accessibleToo often regarded as a compendium of Greek and Roman myths Metamorphoses should be read as a continuous poem telling the story of the world from the creation to the apotheosis of Julius Caesar but in Ovid's own inimitable and often funny and scurrilous fashion Along the way he takes in almost every story ever told in the ancient wor

    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleMetamorphoses will always be one of my favorite classical Greek texts The stories are engaging and the structure forces you to think and remember utilizing your own knowledge of mythology to make sense of the connections Although this wasn't the greatest translation the language is beautiful I really enjoyed revisiting this and look forward to reading the second half soon

    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleWhat is there to say? It’s Ovid it’s Metamorphoses it’s the chief source of Ancient Greek mythology as told by the Augustan Greco Roman poet This volume from Loeb contains the first 8 of 15 books covering the range of stories from the Creation of the world the Four Ages the Flood Deucalion and Pyrrha through the stories of Io Europa Phaethon Callisto Cadmus and the founding of Thebes followed by Narcissus Tiresias Bacchanalian cult and Pentheus Pyramus and Thisbe the prototypes of Romeo and Juliet Hermaphroditus Perseus and Andromeda Arachne Niobe and others and to the stories of Medea Jason and the Argonauts

    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleAfter completing Book III I abandoned the rest of this translation since I'm reading the Golding Translation and the Mandelbaum at the same time story by story I found that this prose version by Miller adds nothing for me other than that it includes the Latin text along with the translation Not being a serious scholar and having long since lost track of practically all of my High School Latin the two versions I'm already reading in detail are than sufficient

    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleOvid's work itself is charming A wonderful source of mythology masterfully crafted and skillfully told This selection the first book in the Metamorphoses relates the creation of the world and mankind the attempt of Lycaon to feed human flesh to the gods the flood Apollo's unsuccessful pursuit of the nymph Daphne the story of Io with its frame story of Pan's chase of Syrinx and the first part of the Phaethon episode The Latin was a little difficult at first but started to unravel easily during the story of Deucalion and Pyrrha perhaps because I became used to Ovid's style or because the Latin really was easierAs for A G Lee's commentary I found it pretty useful The layout consists of a thorough introduction to Ovid the Latin text with no footnotes or provided vocabulary the commentary critical notes on the text and finally an index I really would have appreciated a vocabu

    Kindle Ovid #200; Metamorphoses MOBI #218; #200; metamorphoses mobile, Metamorphoses KindleThe mysteries and stories of Ancient Greece but with Roman names for the gods goddesses The Latin names did have me constantly trying to remember the Greek and in some cases the poet uses both the Greek and the Latin sometimes in the very same stanza The explanations of the fable were interesting the translator drawing on knowledge of ancient mythology and how it could be spread to Greece particularly Egyptian and in some cases it's similarity to Judeo Christian stories in the Old Testament The sixth seventh books are into the realm of an ancient people instead of long forgotten deities and how their actions became myth magic The stories of Progne and Philomela Medea Jason and Cephalus are grounded in actual human involvement and less the metamorphoses i
