About this book
Continues the translation of latin poetry which began with Hughes' contributions to the anthology "After Ovid". These twenty-four passages are again both true to the original and demonstrate the poet laureate's own talents, so that the Latin and English poets become one. Also out in hardback this month.
Hughes's three contributions to the anthology "After Ovid" an accurate account of the original so thoroughly imbued with his own qualities that it was as if Latin and English poet were somehow the same person. This volume continues the project, with 24 passages including the stories of Phaeton, Actaon, Echo and Narcissus, Procne and Midas.
