Metamorphoses is a narrative poem by the Roman poet Ovid (43 BC – c. 18 AD). The poem chronicles the history of the world from its creation to the deification of Julius Caesar in 42 BC. The Metamorphoses was a major influence William Shakespeare’s work such as Romeo and Juliet, Venus and Adonis, Titus Andronicus and the Tempest. Drawing on the Greek mythology inherited by the Romans, Ovid directs his dramas one after another, relentlessly bombarding his readers with beautiful awe-inspiring imagery as that of Deucalion and Pyrrha, Arachne, Daphne and Apollo, and many more.
