"Ovid's Metamorphoses is one of the great works in classical literature, and a primary source for our knowledge of much of classic mythology, in which the relentless theme of transformation stands as a primary metaphor for the often cataclysmic dynamics of life itself." Contributions by many important poets such as Ted Hughes, Thom Gunn, Michael Hoffman, Alice Fulton, Robert Pinsky, and others. An intriguing, well executed, and generally successful effort by several noteable poets to revive the classical poems of Ovid and give them modern poetic interpretations.
