This is volume 2 of 2. See also volume 1 here.


This volume brings together a range of celebrated and less familiar translations of Ovid's Metamorphoses produced in English between 1480 and 1625, beginning with the story of Narcissus from Caxton's manuscript translation of the Metamorphoses and ending with George Sandys's version of Callisto's tale. The volume as a whole reflects the complex (and shifting) variety of Ovid's early modern reception. These poems, some of them republished here for the first time, help extend and enrich our understanding of Ovid's influence on early modern literature. All texts have been fully modernised and annotated, rendering them accessible to students and general readers as well as scholars of the period.

Sarah Annes Brown is Professor of English at Anglia Ruskin University. Andrew Taylor is Fellow, Lecturer and Director of Studies in English at Churchill College, Cambridge.
