    Among his extant works are a collection of love elegies (Amores), a collection of fictional letters of mythological heroines (Heroides), and a 15 book mythological narrative (Metamorphoses). Metamorphoses was the most influential of Ovid’s works for Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Ovid went on to write the Metamorphoses, in 15 books; famed as a manual of Greek mythology. His Fasti is a popular, calendar telling the different Roman festivals and the myths associated with each. Ovid’s works during his exile are infused with melancholy and sadness and mainly talk about his longing for his former life and appeals to be.

    In these books Ovid begins to leave the conflict between men and the gods to concentrate on the relations among human beings. Subjects of the stories include Arachne and Niobe; Tereus, Procne, and Philomela; Medea and Jason; Orpheus and Eurydice; and many others, familiar and unfamiliar/5(16). The frame of Ovid's Metamorphoses is a history of events from the days of creation to Ovid's present, but with a twist: All stories told must involve physical transformations (metamorphoses). Verifiably historical figures are limited to the emperors Julius and Augustus whose .

    Ovid turns to the story of twins, Byblis and Caunus; Byblis confesses an incestuous passion for Caunus, who flees upon hearing of it. She follows, but eventually her grief turns her into a fountain. She follows, but eventually her grief turns her into a fountain. "Ovid's Metamorphoses is one of the most influential books ever written. One can see the influence of it in literature through Montaigne's The Complete Essays, where it is often quoted, via Shakespeare and Dante, right down to Pound and Ted Hughes. Painters from Titian to Salvador Dali have also drawn on the stories in this book/5(10).

At the start of Book XI, Ovid tells the story of the murder of the famed musician Orpheus. He also describes the musical contest between Apollo and Pan and the parentage of Achilles. The story of Ceyx, a son of the sun god is a love story with an unhappy ending made more tolerable by the metamorphoses of the loving husband and wife into birds.

Ovid’s story of Orpheus and Eurydice is in conversation with Virgil’s account of it in the Georgics. Ovid fills in details Virgil leaves out and leaves out the details Virgil includes.

Unlike Virgil, Ovid adds a wedding, Orpheus’s encounter with Pluto and Proserpina, and the effect of Orpheus’s song on the inhabitants of the underworld. If one thing unites the characters in Ovid’s poems, it is their tendency to get mixed up in feuds.

Resentments, grudges, and revenge teem through the poem. Nester is hardly the only character with personal biases, and it seems unlikely that he is the sole untrustworthy narrator in the Metamorphoses.

Throughout the Metamorphoses, Ovid stresses the importance of art. The story of Phaeton, the longest single episode of the Metamorphoses, opens with what scholars call an ekphrasis (a description of artwork). The doors of the palace, on which the art is engraved, portray a world of order and peace.

Book IV. Summary. Rather than worship Bacchus, the three daughters of Minyas weave, telling stories to pass the time. The first (unnamed) daughter tells a tale of forbidden love.

Pyramus and Thisbe fall in love. Their fathers oppose the match, so they decide to run away together. The first major Roman poet to begin his career during the reign of Augustus, Ovid is today best known for the Metamorphoses, a book continuous mythological narrative written in the meter of epic, and for works in elegiac couplets such as Ars Amatoria ("The Art of Love") and : Publius Ovidius Naso, 20 March 43 BC.

Kline's Version) The story was finished, and the daughters of Minyas still pressed on with their work, spurning the god and profaning his festival, when suddenly harsh sounds sprang up from unseen drums, pipes with curved horns sounded, and cymbals clashed. Saffron and myrrh perfumed the air, and unbelievably.After Deucalion and Pyrrha repopulate the earth, Ovid starts talking about various strange occurrences involving gods, demigods, and mortals, all centering on moments of transformation from one physical state to another.
