    The Metamorphoses by Publius Ovidius Naso (43 B.C. - A.D. 17) has, over the centuries, been the most popular and influential work from our classical tradition. This extraordinary collection of some 250 Greek and Roman myths and folk tales has always been a popular favorite, and has decisively shaped western art and literature from the moment it was completed in A.D. 8. The stories are particularly vivid when read by David Horovitch, in this new lively verse translation by Ian Johnston.

    An undeniable masterpiece of Western Civilization, The Metamorphoses is a continuous narrative that covers all the Olympian legends, seamlessly moving from one story to another in a splendid panorama of savage beauty, charm, and wit. All of the gods and heroes familiar to us are represented. Such familiar legends as Hercules, Perseus and Medusa, Daedelus and Icarus, Diana and Actaeon, and many others, are breathtakingly recreated.

    Ovid's sensuous and witty poem brings together a dazzling array of mythological tales, ingeniously linked by the idea of transformation, often as a result of love or lust, in which men and women find themselves magically changed into new and sometimes extraordinary beings. Beginning with the creation of the world and ending with the deification of Augustus, Ovid interweaves many of the best known myths and legends of ancient Greece and Rome.

    In February 1864, 500 Union prisoners of war arrived at the Confederate stockade at Anderson Station, Georgia. Andersonville, as it was later known, would become legendary for its brutality and mistreatment, with the highest mortality rate--more than 30 percent--of any Civil War prison. Fourteen months later 32,000 men were imprisoned there.

    Der Dichter selbst verspricht: "Wir werden sicheren Liebesgenuss und erlaubte Heimlichkeiten besingen, und in meinem Gedicht wird kein Verbrechen gelehrt." Ob das 2000 Jahre alte Lehrgedicht über die Liebe heutzutage noch praktisch hilfreich ist, müssen Jüngere beurteilen. Die ältere Generation mag jedenfalls ihr ästhetisches Vergnügen daran haben. Oder wird man mich schelten, weil ich ein Frauenbild verbreiten helfe, das so gar nicht in unsere Zeit passt (und das ja auch gar nicht meines ist)?

    Ovids Liebeskunst ist der Klassiker der Liebeslehre. Als erste europäische Liebeslehre unterscheidet sie sich grundsätzlich von orientalischen Handbüchern der Liebeskunst wie etwa dem Kamasutra. Ovid geht es um die Erotik, um das gesellschaftliche Phänomen der Liebe, weniger um den Aspekt der sexuellen Perfektion - ohne diesen Bereich allerdings völlig auszusparen.

    Menschen entstehen aus Schlamm und Steinen, Nymphen werden zu Sträuchern, übermütige Jünglinge stürzen auf ihrem Himmelsflug ab, ein altes Ehepaar nimmt die Gestalt von Bäumen an... Die Rede ist u. a. von Pyrrha und Deucalion, Daphne und Apoll, Daedalus und Ikarus, Philemon und Baucis. Hier ist der ganze ausufernde Mythenschatz der Antike versammelt.
