0 Reviews
The shape-changing poetry of Ovid's Metamorphoses has fascinated writers and artists from Shakespeare to Ted Hughes, from Rembrandt to Picasso. Philip Terry asked a number of contemporary writers to take Ovid as their starting point and let their imaginations run. The results are varied, startling, scary, sexy, endlessly illuminating and suggestive, often changing the shape of the modern short story itself. Contributors include Margaret Atwood, A.S. Byatt, M.J. Fitzgerald, Paul Griffiths, Gabriel Josipovici, Roger Moss, Sunit Namjoshi, Joyce Carol Oates, Michele Roberts, Ken Smith, Philip Terry, Marina Warner and Paul West.
