Ovid's Metamorphosis
Together we will read, interpret, and discuss a selection of myths from the classical poet Ovid. Class time will be devoted to group discussion. All readings will be in English translation, no knowledge of Latin is expected or required. Participants will need to acquire a text copy of the poem; the Alan Mandelbaum translation (in paperback) is strongly recommended and is available on Amazon. We will discuss core themes of the text such as love, revenge, virtue, the interaction between gods and humans, and, of course, transformation. Margo Kolenda-Mason is a Ph.D. candidate in the English Language and Literature Department at the University of Michigan, where she researches medieval and renaissance English literature.
