Peter E. Knox is Professor of Classics at the University of Colorado. His publications include
Ovid′s Metamorphoses and the Traditions of Augustan Poetry (1986) and
Ovid, Heroides: Select Epistles (1995), as well as many articles on a wide range of topics in Greek and Roman literature.
The result is something quite extraordinary, a coherent and engaging treatment of the full corpus of Ovid s writing in just under 130 pages . . . V. has produced an eminently readable, highly engaging introduction to Ovid, one that speaks to exactly the audience she had envisaged, in a voice both accessible and smart. (The Classical Review, 1 October 2012)
Aimed at the general reading public and at newcomers to Ovid, her book is also a delight for experienced Ovidian scholars, providing an engaging, attractive, and thoughtful overview of the poet and his works that shows why his oeuvre remains intellectually valuable as well as an enjoyable read. Fluent and accessible, the volume covers a great deal of ground with lightness of foot. Volk takes a thematic approach that cuts across individual works in productive ways, but the simple titles of the chapters Work , Life , Elegy , Myth , Art , Women , Rome , Reception do not adequately convey a sense of the treasures that lie within their pages.
