Abstract:

The Metamorphoses or Transformations of Ovid was completed at Rome in the year 8 AD, which also was the year that the Emperor Augustus sent its author into retirement far away from Rome. It can be said that the Metamorphoses, written at the beginning of the Christian era, was the last long-sustained major work of a great age in Latin poetry, and it was also evidence of a peculiarly Italian genius which places it at a middle distance away from the Aeneid, since it was not a true and heroic epic, toward the novellas of Bandello and the lyricism of Petrarch. - Introduction.
