Description - Ovid: Heroides by Ovid

In this volume, Professor Knox provides the first full-scale commentary in English in this century on a selection from Ovid's Heroides, a collection of letters in elegiac verse supposedly addressed by heroines of mythology to their absent lovers or husbands. This edition is intended to provide students of Latin literature with guidance in the interpretation of these poems. The Introduction also includes a general account of Ovid's career and the place of the Heroides in the development of Augustan poetry.
