The Student's Ovid: Selections from the Metamorphoses
Ideally suited to intermediate to advanced college-level students, The Studentís Ovid offers twenty-one selections from the Metamorphoses, with notes to aid translation and interpretation. The introduction includes an essay on Ovidís life and works, an outline of the structure of the Metamorphoses, and tips on Latin poetic forms and usage.

Other special features of this book include:
∑ a glossary of mythological characters
∑ lists of stories grouped by theme to help teachers design courses to suit their studentsí interests
∑ discussions of the basic concepts of classical meter, Latin pronunciation, and accentuation
∑ reference charts on the declension of Greek nouns to aid the reading of proper names
∑ a select bibliography of translations and secondary studies
