This collection of fifteen essays examines the literary influence of Ovid’s
Metamorphoses from the late Middle Ages to the seventeenth century. Such
notable authors as Christine de Pizan, Gower, Chaucer, Petrarch, Scève,
Cervantes, Góngora, and Milton are explored. By concentrating on Ovid’s
most influential work, the volume fills a specific niche in the general literature
of classical influences in medieval and early modern Europe.
