Reading Notes for Ovid’s Metamorphoses Part 2

Reflections by John from flickr It's honestly strange how some of these backstories are told. With Tiresias, he was blinded by Juno for simply disagreeing with her in a basic argument. Although, in cases like with Echo Juno's retaliation seems warranted or at least justified to an extent. The same could be said about Narcissus who rejected everyone due to his pride. Reading about a man who loves himself mourning the fact he cannot be with himself is a very surreal experience. Ovid’s Metamorphoses by Ovid

Reading Notes for Ovid’s Metamorphoses Part 1

Apollo's Chariot by Killian77 from flickr I really enjoyed the first part of Metamorphoses. Phaethon's story stuck out to me the most. The way Ovid describes the ride in the chariot was very descriptive. I think it would be really interesting to write the story from the perspective of Phaethon. To think about his panic and fear is something that we could only imagine. Ovid's Metamorphoses by Ovid
