    Review quote
    The best version of Ovid's Metamorphoses available in English today... It is readable, alive, at times slangy, and actually catches Ovid's tone. Philadelphia Inquirer No one can deny the merits of Slavitt's version. His English hexameter is a great success-a supple, fluid, and versatile medium that does Ovid's loosening of the Virgilian line full justice. And at his best he is very good indeed. -- Bernard Knox New York Review of Books 1998
