Class Details

This course will explore Ovid’s greatest work, an epic poem in fifteen books entitled Metamorphoses. Ovid’s poem narrates the story of the world from its beginning down to his own day, the reign of Augustus, via a series of tales closely woven together through the theme of change. We will translate and discuss large portions of the Latin text along with selections from contemporary scholarship in order to consider the poem in its original political and cultural context as well as its relationship to earlier models and its post-classical reception.
