Metamorphoses is Ovid’s epic account of Greek and Roman myths, presented as a single narrative from the Creation to his own day, and linked by the theme of ‘changes of shape’. Sentimental, whimsical, erotic, violent, full of pathos – the stories evoke a wide range of emotions, displaying Ovid’s remarkable imagination and wit.
We will read the book in David Raeburn’s modern verse translation, and some stories in the 1567 translation by Arthur Golding or the adapted versions of Ted Hughes.
3rd Thursday of each month, 10.30 a.m., Raynes Park, restarting January.
