Ovid's Poetry of Exile

By Ovid

About the Author

David R. Slavitt, poet, novelist, critic, and journalist, has published more than fifty books. His translations include the Metamorphoses of Ovid, The Fables of Avianus, the "Eclogues" and "Georgics" of Virgil, and Seneca: The Tragedies, Vols. 1 and 2, all available from Johns Hopkins.

Reviews

Slavitt is an American poet and a slyly sophisticated novelist. In his free renderings, Ovid leaps to live: a very modern, urbane, plaintive man protesting his exile from Rome... This is grand stuff.

- Newsweek

Endorsements

Someone clever, passionate, and heartbroken comes very near us, and I think it is Ovid. I found it impossible to stop reading these poems. And poems they are.
