Ovid and the Cultural Politics of Translation in Early Modern England, Hardback Book

Ovid and the Cultural Politics of Translation in Early Modern England Hardback

Part of the Studies in European Cultural Transition series

Description

In Ovid and the Cultural Politics of Early Modern England, Liz Oakley-Brown considers English versions of the Metamorphoses - a poem concerned with translation and transformation on a multiplicity of levels - as important sites of social and historical difference from the fifteenth to the early eighteenth centuries.

Through the exploration of a range of canonical and marginal texts, from Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus to women's embroideries of Ovidian myths, Oakley-Brown argues that translation is central to the construction of national and gendered identities.
