Clifton Hill House, Bristol

From the 12th-century onwards, Ovid’s Metamorphoses exerted an enduring influence on Western culture. The capacity of this poem to be constantly present in our world is due to its innate transformative ability.

This conference will bring together scholars working on medieval and early modern translations of the Metamorphoses in Europe in order to shed light on the various ways in which Ovid’s poem was re-purposed and received, as well as to trace connections between different literary traditions.
