Ovid's Metamorphoses have been seen as both the culmination of and a revolution in the classical epic tradition, transferring narrative interest from "arms and the man," the war-centered epics from Homer to Virgil, to tales of love and fantasy. This introduction considers how Ovid found and shaped his narrative from the creation of the world to his own sophisticated times, illustrating the cruelty of jealous gods, the pathos of human love and transformation, and the imaginative fantasy of flight, monsters, magic, and illusion.
