Ovid's famous mock epic a treasury of myth and magic that is one of the greatest literary works of classical antiquity is rendered into fluidly poetic English by world-renowned translator Allen Mandelbaum.

Roman poet Ovid's dazzling cycle of tales begins with the creation of the world and ends with the deification of Caesar Augustus. In between is a glorious panoply of the most famous myths and legends of the ancient Greek and Roman world from Echo's passion for Narcissus to Pygmalion's living statue, from Perseus's defeat of Medusa to the fall of Troy. Retold with Ovid's irreverent flair, these tales are united by the theme of metamorphosis, as men and women are rendered alien to themselves, turned variously to flowers, trees, animals, and stones. The closest thing to a central character is love itself a confounding, transforming, irrational force that makes fools of gods and mortals alike.

Övrig information

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) was born into a Jewish family in Prague. In 1906 he received a doctorate in jurisprudence, and for many years he worked a tedious job as a civil service lawyer investigating claims at the state Worker's Accident Insurance Institute. He never married, and published only a few slim volumes of stories during his lifetime. Meditation, a collection of sketches, appeared in 1912; The Stoker: A Fragment in 1913; The Metamorphosis in 1915; The Judgement in 1916; In the Penal Colony in 1919; and A Country Doctor in 1920. Only a few of his friends knew that Kafka was also at work on the great novels that were published after his death from tuberculosis: America, The Trial, and The Castle
