Description

This book is an essential companion for undergraduate students studying Ovid and this popular epic Latin poem. Perhaps no other classical text has proved its versatility so much as Ovid's epic poem. A staple of undergraduate courses in Classical Studies, Latin, English, and Comparative Literature, "Metamorphoses" is arguably one of the most important, canonical Latin texts and certainly among the most widely read and studied. Ovid's "Metamorphoses: A Reader's Guide" is the ideal companion to this epic classical text offering guidance on: literary, historical, and cultural context; key themes; reading the text; reception and influence; and further reading. "Continuum Reader's Guides" are clear, concise and accessible introductions to key texts in literature and philosophy. Each book explores the themes, context, criticism, and influence of key works, providing a practical introduction to close reading, guiding students towards a thorough understanding of the text. They provide an essential, up-to-date resource, ideal for undergraduate students.
