This is a unique study of documents crucial to our understanding of Renaissance culture. It takes three of Ovid's fables--Apollo and Daphne, Actaeon, and Echo and Narcissus--and follows the renaissance history of their interpretation by translating (with full annotation) the appropriate sections from nine major commentaries on Ovid, beginning with that by Raphael Regius (1493) and ending with Thomas Farnabius's (1637).
