The brilliant historical epic "Metamorphoses" is Ovid's magnum opus. He has brilliantly presented a vast canvas which offers a multitude of legendary and mythical figures; these are linked together by a single thread - the theme of transition and unpredictability of nature. It chronicles the history of the world from the time of creation till the era of Julius Caesar. An enduring classic!
