Metamorphoses

Metamorphoses is an ancient text, a masterpiece comparable to the works of Homer and Virgil. Written by Ovid in verse, it is usually translated into prose form. It is a collection of ancient Greek and Roman mythology. It includes the most famous tales, like the creation of the world, the stories of Narcissus, Perseus, King Midas, Venus and Adonis, Orpheus and Eurydice. It contains stories about transformations, people turning into flowers, trees or animals, usually as a punishment. It is full of usual and vivid characters, gods and mortals. It is a source for all the Greek myth retellings we were obsessed about.
