    schema:description "Alessandro Barchiesi transcends the opposition of Augustan and anti-Augustan readings of Ovid's work. Leading the reader through detailed assessments of and varied perspectives on Ovid's fascinating poem - a work shaped by important poetic choices and political considerations - Barchiesi reveals the poem to be far more than an antiquarian curiosity. He points to the use of Ovid as a poetic figure by modern writers around the globe, such as Antonio Tabucchi, Christoph Ransmayr, and David Malouf. Both scholars and general readers will find a newly meaningful and interesting Ovid in these pages."@en ;
