Level 6 Reader | Metamorphoses Ovidii: Loci Septem Egregii
Metamorphoses Ovidii: Loci Septem Egregii is a Latin student edition of selections from Ovid’s Metamorphoses (“Transformations”). Publius Ovidius Naso (43 B.C. – A.D. 17), known in English simply as Ovid, is one of the greatest of the Roman poets. His largest and most infl uential work, the Metamorphoses, which comprises 15 books and over 12,000 lines of dactylic hexameter poetry, is not only a veritable encyclopedia of classical mythology, but also a masterful epic poem that has had a profound impact on the Western literary tradition, including signifi cant authors such as Dante, Boccaccio, Chaucer, and Shakespeare. This Latin edition is designed for highly advanced Latin students and, as such, contains no English translation, defi nitions, summaries, or interpretations. Instead, it provides facing-page lexical, grammatical, and contextual prompts along with a Latin-Latin dictionary at the end of the book. Included are seven of the best and most beloved stories from the Metamorphoses: “Daphne et Apollo,” “Iuppiter et Io,” “Phaethon” (selections), “Echo et Narcissus,” “Pyramus et Thisbe,” “Latona,” and “Pygmalion.”
