Editorial Reviews

Review

"Students and instructors alike will find Knox's observations on Ovid's language, style, and meter, as well as his notes on single words and phrase, comprehensive and stimulating. The bibliography and indexes are thorough and up-to-date. Highly recommended..." Choice

"Peter Knox, an outstanding Ovidian Scholar, has produced a typically thorough, in many ways excellent, commentary on a selection of Heroides for the Cambridge "yellow and green" series." Sergio Casali, The Classical Journal

"Knox provides an introduction to Ovid's Heroides, useful for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and professional classicists. Moreover, careful study of the notes can serve as an excellent introduction to the broader topic of Ovidian language, style, and metrics." Betty Rose Nagle, Classical World

Format: Hardcover
My Latin class is using this text this quarter, and we find it excellent. It includes a large introduction with explanations of the myths involved, and which tells about Ovid's life. The book also includes many, many notes that give suggested translations for difficult lines and explain ambiguous references. The text includes Heroides letters 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, and the "incerti auctoris epistula Sapphus ad Phaonem". Enjoy!

Of course if you don't read Latin you don't want to read this book, that is what it is for! The epistles are well selected and the commentary is right on...exactly what I would expect of Knox.

Readers should note that if you do not read Latin (and I don't), you will not be able to read the actual epistles in this book - only the introduction and the commentary. Since I will have to order another version of the Heroides to actually read the ancient text, I cannot yet comment on the English commentary included in this book! I am giving it a two for now.
