Solodow, Joseph B.


Synthesizing a wealth of detailed observations, Joseph Solodow studies the structure of Ovid's poem "Metamorphoses," the role of the narrator, Ovid's treatment of myth, and the relationship between Ovid's and Virgil's presentations of Aeneas. He argues that for Ovid metamorphosis is an act of clarification, a form of artistic creation, and that the metamorphosed creatures in his poem are comparable to works of art. These figures ultimately aid us in perceiving and understanding the world.Solodow, Joseph B. is the author of 'World of Ovid's Metamorphoses' with ISBN 9780807817711 and ISBN 0807817716.
