Metamorphoses

Autor Ovid Traducere de David Raeburn
en Limba Engleză Hardback – 3 apr 2014
Ovid's deliciously clever and exuberant epic, now in a gorgeous new clothbound edition designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith.These delectable and collectable editions are bound in high-quality, tactile cloth with foil stamped into the design.

Ovid's sensuous and witty poetry brings together a dazzling array of mythological tales, ingeniously linked by the idea of transformation - often as a result of love or lust - where men and women find themselves magically changed into new and sometimes extraordinary beings. Beginning with the creation of the world and ending with the deification of Augustus, Ovid interweaves many of the best-known myths and legends of Ancient Greece and Rome, including Daedalus and Icarus, Pyramus and Thisbe, Pygmalion, Perseus and Andromeda, and the fall of Troy. Erudite but light-hearted, dramatic yet playful, theMetamorphoseshas influenced writers and artists throughout the centuries from Shakespeare and Titian to Picasso and Ted Hughes.

Ovid (43BC-18AD) was born at Sulmo (Sulmona) in central Italy. Coming from a wealthy Roman family and seemingly destined for a career in politics, he held minor official posts before leaving public service to write, becoming the most distinguished poet of his time. His works, all published in Penguin Classics, includeAmores, a collection of short love poems;Heroides, verse-letters written by mythological heroines to their lovers;Ars Amatoria,a satirical handbook on love; andMetamorphoses,his epic work that has inspired countless writers and artists through the ages.

David Raeburn is a lecturer in Classics at Oxford, and has also translated Sophocles' Electra and Other Plays for Penguin Classics.

Denis Feeney is Professor of Classics at Princeton.

Descriere

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
A masterpiece of Western culture, "The Metamorphoses" is the first attempt to link all the Greek myths in a cohesive whole to the Roman myths of Ovid's day. In this modern translation, Gregory turns his own poetic gifts toward a deft reconstruction of Ovid's ancient themes. Revised reissue.

Recenzii

Stanley Lombardo successfully matches Ovid's human drama, imaginative brio, and irresistible momentum; and Ralph Johnson's superb Introduction to Ovid's 'narratological paradise' is a bonus to this new and vigorous translation that should not be missed. Together, Introduction and text bring out the delightful unpredictability of Ovid's 'history of the world' down to his times.--Elaine Fantham, Giger Professor of Latin, Emerita, Princeton University
Lombardo's translation is the most readable I've seen. . . . Its language is modern, accessible, and unpretentious. . . . I can imagine reading all the way through this version with students. I also admire the catalog of transformations . . . and, as usual, an Introduction by Ralph Johnson is worth the price of the book.--Margaret Musgrove, University of Central Oklahoma
A superb teaching text. The translation is readable, witty, and very accessible to today's students. The glossary is useful, and Johnson's essay is a great introduction to Ovid.--John Makowski, Loyola University, Chicago
