Times, Dates, Translations

The Ovid's Metamorphoses group meets on Wednesdays at the Gulf Gate Library, 10:15 to 12:15. Upcoming dates are:
  • February 16th
  • March 2nd and 16th and 30th
  • April 6th and 20th
If you have a translation you like, bring it. A number of people will be using Rolfe Humphries, others Allen Mandelbaum. We'll have the Loeb Latin on hand as well -- more on translations below. A few online resources are linked on the right.

We'll be starting with Book 1. As usual, we'll read aloud and comment as we go.

Humphries - small glossary at back of text.

Mandelbaum - no glossary or other notes.
