Written by a leading Shakespeare scholar, this book is the first comprehensive account of the relationship between Shakespeare and his favorite poet, Ovid. Bate examines the full range of Shakespeare's works, identifying Ovid's presence not only in the narrative poems and pastoral comedies, but also in the Sonnets and mature tragedies. Demonstrating how profoundly creative Ovid's influence was, especially in his representations of myth, metamorphosis, and sexuality, this original and elegantly written study reveals Shakespeare as an extraordinarily sophisticated reader of Ovidian myth and as a metamorphic artist as fluid and nimble as his classical original.

About the Author:

Jonathan Bate is at University of Liverpool.

Review:


"Jonathan Bate, with the wind blowing briskly against him, is willing to write of Shakespeare and Ovid, separated as they are by centuries of historical turbulence....Bate's choice of Ovid as affording a means of returning to the idea of literature as transcending history seems to me both correct and very cunning....[A] marvellous book....Bate is, again and again, brilliant."--London Review of books


"Well written and accessible, the book not only enhances one's understanding of Shakespeare, but may lead students to an interest in Ovid....Highly recommended."--Choice


"Impressive in [its] scope and scholarship....Genuinely illuminating....Jonathan Bate has written the first comprehensive account of Shakespeare's relationship with the poet who influenced him the most deeply, Ovid....a fine example of scholarship put at the service of Shakespeare."--The Sunday Telegraph


"There is much to admire and to be grateful for in Shakespeare and Ovid. It is quite simply the best study of the topic that has yet appeared."--Shakespeare Quarterly

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1994. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is the first comprehensive account of the relationship between Shakespeare and his favourite poet, Ovid. Jonathan Bate examines the full range of Shakespeare s work, identifying Ovid s presence not only in the narrative poems and pastoral comedies, but also in the Sonnets and mature tragedies. He shows how profoundly creative Ovid s influence was, from the raped Lavinia s turning of the pages of the Metamorphoses in Titus Andronicus, and the staging of Pyramus and Thisbe in A Midsummer Night s Dream, to the reanimation of Hermione s statue in The Winter s Tale and Prospero s renunciation of his magic in The Tempest. The Heroides are shown to have been vital to Shakespeare s female characters, but it is the Metamorphoses which animate Professor Bate s book, just as they animated the whole of Shakespeare s career. This original and elegantly written book reveals Shakespeare as an extraordinarily sophisticated reader of Ovidian myth and as a metamorphic artist as fluid and nimble as his classical original. From reviews of the hardback: Jonathan Bate has written the first comprehensive account of Shakespeare s relationship with the poet who influenced him most deeply .His book is a fine example of scholarship put at the service of Shakespeare. Sunday Telegraph Bate s choice of Ovid as affording a means of returning to the idea of literature as transcending history seems to me both correct and very cunning .Bate is, again and again, brilliant. London Review of Books excellent study .he brilliantly demonstrates the fructifying presence of Ovid, overtly in the early and late work but also as a subtler underpresence in the mature tragedies.
