"The past few years have seen several new translations of [Ovid's] work appear and a few acute scholarly studies, too. Among the more accessible of the latter category is Katharina Volk's introduction to Ovid...Volk, a professor of classics at Columbia and the new editor of The Transactions of the American Philological Association,is about as high a star in the American academic firmament as one might find. Her tone is devoid of the jargon and pretense by which many an Ovidian monograph is marred. After concise initial chapters on the poet's work and life, we find sensible discussions on elegy, women, and Rome, as well as a selective survey of Ovid's subsequent reception in Western art and literature." (Sewanee Review, 2012) " ...the book is truly first-class. It will, I believe, become invaluable for any course in which Ovid is a central component..." (BMCR, 6 February 2012) "Katharina Volk's Ovid is a wonderfully deft and spirited introduction to the whole of the poet's oeuvre, covering a remarkable amount of ground in just under 150 pages ." (Times Literary Supplement, 16 September 2011) "That quibble aside, this is an admirable book, suitable as both an up-to-date introduction for tyros and as a refreshing overview of matters Ovidian for advanced scholars." (Acta Classica,1 December 2011)
