MEDIA REVIEWS
The best version of Ovid's Metamorphoses available in English today... It is readable, alive, at times slangy, and actually catches Ovid's tone. * Philadelphia Inquirer *
No one can deny the merits of Slavitt's version. His English hexameter is a great success-a supple, fluid, and versatile medium that does Ovid's loosening of the Virgilian line full justice. And at his best he is very good indeed. -- Bernard Knox * New York Review of Books *
