Ovid's Changing Worlds: English Metamorphoses, 1567-1632
Ovid's Changing Worlds looks at the four most important English imitations of the Metamorphoses in the English Renaissance: the translations of Arthur Golding and George Sandys, Spenser's Faerie Queene, and Michael Drayton's Poly-Olbion. It sheds new light on dealings with the classics in the
period and shows that the emergence of English literature was a complex and fascinating process.
