.DOWNLOAD ♍ Metamorphoses: Volume I, Books I-VIII ⚕ eBooks or Kindle ePUB free

All I can say is go out and find the loeb Metamorphoses and have fun Easily the greatest epic I ve read so far, and I ve read a lot. Metamorphoses will always be one of my favorite classical Greek texts The stories are engaging, and the structure forces you to think and remember, utilizing your own knowledge of mythology to make sense of the connections Although this wasn t the greatest translation, the language is beautiful I really enjoyed revisiting this and look forward to reading the second half soon. I actually read the Teubner edition I believe this remains the longest thing that I have read in Latin I enjoy Ovid, and this is one of the best ways to survey ancient mythology. A book I ve spent so much time with, it s permanently ingrained in my consciousness And really, I don t mind a bit. Mythical history in dactylic hexameters Theseus Least affecting, but Daedalus and Icarus make the room feel dusty.

Ovid s work itself is charming A wonderful source of mythology, masterfully crafted and skillfully told This selection, the first book in the Metamorphoses, relates the creation of the world and mankind, the attempt of Lycaon to feed human flesh to the gods, the flood, Apollo s unsuccessful pursuit of the nymph Daphne, the story of Io with its frame story of Pan s chase of Syrinx, and the first part of the Phaethon episode The Latin was a little difficult at first, but started to unravelOvid s work itself is charming A wonderful source of mythology, masterfully crafted and skillfully told This selection, the first book in the Metamorphoses, relates the creation of the world and mankind, the attempt of Lycaon to feed human flesh to the gods, the flood, Apollo s unsuccessful pursuit of the nymph Daphne, the story of Io with its frame story of Pan s chase of Syrinx, and the first part of the Phaethon episode The Latin was a little difficult at first, but started to unraveleasily during the story of Deucalion and Pyrrha, perhaps because I became used to Ovid s style or because the Latin really was easier.As for A G Lee s commentary, I found it pretty useful The layout consists of a thorough introduction to Ovid, the Latin text with no footnotes or provided vocabulary, the commentary, critical notes on the text, and finally, an index I really would have appreciated a vocabulary section at the back of the book I know that some people prefer to wrestle over the meanings of a Latin word themselves, but I would think that most students reading this text would prefer to have the Latinhandy Most of the commentary was very good, but a good deal of it referred readers to other Latin quotes with no translation I think I am safe in saying that most students will not take the time to translate the Latin in the commentary, so it would have been good of Lee to include one himself.This book will probably be a little too advanced for high school students reading Ovid for the first time but suitable for undergraduates.N.B., Goodreads says that this book is edited by D E Hill, but the cover clearly says A G Lee
