Seductresses and she-monsters, nymphs and demi-goddesses, populate the famous myths of Ovid's Metamorphoses. Drawing on the rhythms of epic poetry, everyday speech, and folk songs, Nina MacLaughlin recovers what is lost when such stories of women are told and translated by men. Revisiting each account of love, loss, revenge, and change, these revamped tales—featuring such characters as Arachne, Eurydice, Daphne, Callisto—are transposed to a modern setting, revealing the kinship of women through the ages.
