""The Metamorphoses of Ovid offers to the modern world such a key to the literary and religious culture of the ancients that it becomes an important event when at last a good poet comes up with a translation into English verse.""--John Crowe Ransom"" ... a charming and expert English version, which is right in tone for the Metamorphoses."" -Francis Fergusson""This new Ovid, fresh and faithful, is right for our time and should help to restore a great reputation."" -Mark Van DorenThe first and still the best modern verse translation of the Metamorphose

Festkalender Roms : Lateinisch - Deutsch by Ovid( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ovids Lehrgedicht über den römischen Festkalender, die "Fasti", entsteht im Zeitalter des Kaisers Augustus, der mit seiner Einrichtung der Monarchie eine Rückwendung zu altrömischem Götterkult, altrömischem Brauchtum und dem Mythos von der Bestimmung der Stadt Rom zur Herrin der Welt verbindet. Das Werk bietet mit heiter-besinnlichen Erläuterungen zu den Festtagen der Monate Januar bis Juni eine unterhaltsame und zugleich literarisch anspruchsvolle Einführung in die religiösen, mythischen und historischen Hintergründe für offizielle Anlässe zum Opfern und Feiern. Griechische und römische Götter- und Heldensagen werden dabei ebenso spannend wie humorvoll nacherzählt. Die Versübertragung des renommierten Ovid-Forschers Niklas Holzberg ist dem heutigen Sprachgebrauch angepasst. --

Briefe aus der Verbannung/Tristia. Epistulae ex Ponto Lateinisch - Deutsch by Ovid( )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahre 8 n. Chr. wird Ovid aus nicht bekanntem Grund von Kaiser Augustus nach Tomis am Schwarzen Meer verbannt, an den Rand der zivilisierten Welt, in eine trostlose Gegend, in der niemand Latein spricht und die er bis zu seinem Tod 17 n. Chr. nicht mehr verlassen wird. Er beginnt, verzweifelte Briefe zu schreiben - man würde sie heute "Offene Briefe" nennen - und diese nach Rom zur Veröffentlichung zu schicken. Sie sind sorgsam dichterisch komponiert, der Stil ist geschliffen und sie haben nur ein Ziel: die öffentliche Meinung in Rom für ihn einzunehmen; erfolglos, wie wir wissen. Gleichwohl sind die Briefe bewegende Dokumente frühester Exil-Literatur. Sie wurden das ganze Mittelalter über gelesen und haben das moderne Bewusstsein Europas mitgeprägt. Die neue Einführung des Münchner Altphilologen Niklas Holzberg und die neuen besonders ausführlichen Anmerkungen zu den unzähligen versteckten Anspielungen in den Briefen untersuchen sorgfältig, was an Ovids Klagen echt und was "Literatur" ist, wo er unter der Unerträglichkeit des Exils tatsächlich leidet und wo er nur gängigen Vorstellungen über die Wildnis am Pontos Ausdruck verleiht. Eingeleitet und erläutert von Niklas Holzberg
Fastorum libri sex : the fasti of Ovid by Ovid( )

6 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir James Frazer (1854-1941) is best remembered today for The Golden Bough, widely considered to be one of the most important early texts in the fields of psychology and anthropology. Originally a classical scholar, Frazer also published this five-volume edition of Ovid's Fasti in 1929. It contains the text and a parallel English translation, with commentary on the six books, indexes, illustrations, and plans. Frazer's interest in Ovid's unfinished final poem arose from his wide-ranging studies of ancient literature and the origins of myth. The work describes the origins of the Roman calendar with its sacred days, and ranges from the deeds of major gods and heroes to the strange rites involved in placating the goddess of mildew. Volume 3 contains Frazer's commentary on Books III and IV, dealing with the Roman months of March and April. Other works by Frazer are also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection

Liebeskunst/Ars amatoria Überarbeitete Neuausgabe der Übersetzung von Niklas Holzberg. Lateinisch - Deutsch by Ovid( )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schon von Kaiser Augustus als Aufforderung zur Unsittlichkeit missverstanden, wurde Ovids "Liebeskunst" bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert hinein als frivoler Scherz gedeutet und meist dementsprechend übersetzt. Niklas Holzbergs schlichte Wiedergabe des Originals vermeidet die plüschige Stammtischerotik der alten Übersetzungen
