"Brilliantly succeeds at bringing Ovid's passionate and disturbing stories to life."--James Shapiro, The New York Times Book Review
"One of the few unquestionable successes in the revolutionary vein Pound opened at the start of the century."--Donald Lyons, The Wall Street Journal
"Hughes is as broad as Ovid and as subtle, as violent and as erotic, as elegant and as folksy-and often all at the same time. It is simply a beautiful match."--Michael Hofmann, The Times (London)
