Metamorphises - Ovid's Tales of Transformation
You know that thing about rock pools - you stare into them and there's something there, indescribable, illusory but tangible. Those are naiads - tiny nymphs. And you know that thing about mist hanging over a stream or a field - spooky, beautiful - well that's the work of the goddess Diana hiding another nymph from the advances of a rampant man. Ovid shamelessly plundered the myths of Rome, Greece and anywhere else he could find, to get his hands on the spectacle and magic (not to mention the sex and violence), and brilliantly compressed them all within a two thousand year old blockbuster.
