About this title

Synopsis:

Ovid's delight in the physical and mythical worlds is fully realized and captured in Arthur Golding's superb translation of the ancient stories of Metamorphoses. The complete text is offered here, with original spelling preserved, as well as a contemporary introduction, glossary, bibliography, and background notes on characters and stories. An English Renaissance classic, readers can delight in knowing Shakespeare read the same translation.

About the Author:

Arthur Golding was the younger son of a high ranking Puritan family. He counted the Earl of Oxford and Sir Philip Sydney among his patrons, as well as the Earl of Leicester, to whom he dedicated his Metamorphoses. Golding's prosperity did not last: in 1593 he was briefly imprisoned for debt. He died in 1606. Editor Peter Scupham was born in Liverpool in 1933 and studied at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He founded The Mandeville Press with John Mole and he is a fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. He has ten previous collections of poetry published by Oxford University Press and Anvil. He now lives in Norfolk and runs a catalogue book business with Margaret Steward.
