The Metamorphoses constitute a mature work in which Ovid shows all his accumulated experience based on a wide elegiac, lyrical and tragic tradition. In the Metamorphoses, Ovid explains the history of almost 250 myths and legends of Roman Antiquity and their various transformations. In it there are transformations of gods, animals and inanimate beings, but there is no doubt that the most important metamorphoses in the entire work are suffered by human beings. It came to be considered as the secular Bible of the Middle Ages. Editing by Consuelo Alvarez and Rosa Ma. Iglesias.
