Description

This program provides an introduction to the basic Greek and Roman myths. As a framework, it uses the most accessible and useful book on the subject, Ovid’s “Metamorphoses.” A contemporary of Christ, Ovid was a skilled rhetorician who constructed an epic composed of myths that were current in the Rome of his time. Haller’s discussion of “Metamorphoses” is based on its Penguin paperback edition, a prose translation by Mary Innes. The slide illustrations she uses include medieval manuscript illuminations.
