From the Back Cover:

This Companion is a fitting tribute to one of the most admired and influential poets of classical antiquity. More than 30 new essays from an international cast of noted literary specialists reflect the most recent developments in Ovidian scholarship. Written in an accessible and lively style, the essays represent a wide range of critical methodologies and approaches to Ovid’s world and literary oeuvre. These essays tackle such basic issues as backgrounds and contexts, genre and style, ancient and modern reception, while also offering provocative new interpretations of the poet's major works, from the Amores and Ars amatoria to the Metamorphoses and beyond.

Brimming with fresh and innovative scholarly insights, A Companion to Ovid is a comprehensive overview of a poet whose ever-increasing literary stature and popularity are now made accessible to a new generation of readers.
