The two great works of Ovid are his Metamorphoses and his Fasti. They are both mythological poems, and from the former we [note - "we" here means Bulfinch] have taken most of our stories of Greek and Roman mythology. A late writer thus characterizes these poems:
"The rich mythology of Greece furnished Ovid, as it may still furnish the poet, the painter, and the sculptor, with materials for his art. With exquisite taste, simplicity, and pathos he has narrated the fabulous traditions of early ages, and given to them that appearance of reality which only a master hand could impart. His pictures of nature are striking and true; he selects with care that which is appropriate; he rejects the superfluous; and when he has completed his work, it is neither defective nor redundant. The Metamorphoses are read with pleasure by youth, and are re-read in more advanced age with still greater delight. The poet ventured to predict that his poem would survive him, and be read wherever the Roman name was known."

The Metamorphoses of Ovid
This beautiful book is a translation of the engaging stories written by the Roman poet Ovid. Ovid took Greek mythology as his inspiration, and transformed diverse legends into an elegant compilation, with the idea of metamorphosis or change as his guiding principle.
