From the Back Cover:

The last 25 years have seen a dramatic revival in the popularity of Ovid, making him one of the most popular and widely studied ancient authors. This book provides a concise and accessible introduction to the complete works of the Latin poet, famous for his risqué love poetry, riveting mythological epic Metamorphoses, and mysterious exile at the orders of the emperor Augustus.

Using a thematic approach, Volk lays out what we know about Ovid's life, presents the author's works within their poetic genres, and discusses central Ovidian themes, including art, women, myth, and Augustan Rome. Volk concludes with a study of Ovid's reception over the past 2,000 years. 

This text reflects the very latest insights of Ovidian scholarship, and will be an indispensable companion to those approaching Ovid for the first time, as well as to more seasoned readers and critics.
