After Ovid Summary


After Ovid: New Metamorphoses by Michael Hofmann

Through Arthur Golding's translation of 1579, Ovid's "Metamorphoses" was once the most popular Latin poem among English readers and its influence was felt in the work of all the great Elizabethan writers. This book includes some of the English-writing poets who have been given the opportunity to translate or otherwise treat stories from this literary source. The result is both a celebration of both the vitality of contemporary poetry and the durable power of ancient myth. Contributors include Ted Hughes, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Simon Armitage, C.K. Williams and Vicki Feaver.
