Metamorphica by Zachary Mason

by: Watkins Wisdom




In the tradition of Zachary Mason's bestselling first novel, The Lost Books of the Odyssey - where he recast episodes from Homer's masterpiece - Metamorphica now reimagines Ovid's epic poem of endless transformation, Metamorphoses. Just as the Roman poet reinvigorated the Greek Classical legends 700 years after Homer, so Mason now gives us a radical and exciting renovation of those myths, 2,000 years after Ovid. It retells the great stories of Narcissus, Orpheus, Persephone, Icarus, Midas, Medea and Actaeon, and strings them together like the stars in constellations - with even Ovid himself entering the narrative.
