Description - Ovid Recalled by L. P. Wilkinson
This volume is part of a series of key monographs on topics central to the study of the classical world. This text, first published in 1955, set out to restore Ovid to his rightful position. It examines Ovid's life and work, quoting extensively from his poetry both in Latin and also in English translation, so making the book accessible to those with no knowledge of Latin. Two chapters and an epilogue chart the posthumous fortunes of Ovid's work, along with references, bibliography and detailed indexes. The book aims to provide a starting point for those who have never studied Ovid, elucidating on his work in its original context and as an influence on subsequent generations. The volume may prove useful to students of Classics as well as the general reader with an interest in the subject.
