From Library Journal: Spanning antiquity, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, Barkan's study limns the changing uses of Ovidian metamorphosis in narrative and lyric poetry, painting and sculpture, and drama; in Dante, Shakespeare, and Titian; in Petrarch, Ronsard, and Velazquez; and in Ovid himself. With a flair for verbal and visual nuances and a sure grasp of the history of ideas, Barkan shows us that metamorphosis played a major role in the Western reception of antiquity. The range and ambitions of the study, conveyed in Barkan's graceful, often memorable prose, will assure it a readership beyond academic boundaries. The book includes rich narrative footnotes on iconography, mythography, and the history of interpreting classical literature. Ronald L. Martinez, French and Italian Dept., University of Minnesota, Minneapolis
