Tales from Ovid free pdf A powerful version of the Latin classic by England's late Poet Laureate, now in paperback.When it was published in 1997, "Tales from Ovid "was immediately recognized as a classic in its own right, as the best rering of Ovid in generations, and as a major book in Ted Hughes's oeuvre. The" Metamorphoses of Ovid" stands with the works of Homer, Virgil, Dante, and Milton as a classic of world poetry- Hughes translated twenty-four of its stories with great power and directness. The result is the liveliest twentieth-century version of the classic, at once a delight for the Latinist and an appealing introduction to Ovid for the general reader.
