Stories From Ovid's Metamorphoses is a collection of myths and legends from ancient Roman literature, retold by the poet Ovid. Originally published in 8 AD, the Metamorphoses is a seminal work of classical literature, recounting the creation of the world and the many transformations of its inhabitants, from gods and goddesses to mortals and beasts. In this volume, Ovid's most famous tales are retold in prose, including the stories of Narcissus, Pyramus and Thisbe, and the myth of Apollo and Daphne. These tales are filled with drama, romance, and tragedy, and offer a fascinating glimpse into the beliefs and values of ancient Roman society. With its vivid descriptions and timeless themes, Stories From Ovid's Metamorphoses is a must-read for anyone interested in classical literature or mythology.Revised For Use In American Schools By Wilfred Pirt Mustard.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
