Useful undergraduate text with "greatest hits" of the Metamorphoses. The notes are quite clear and very useful. There is, however, no complete vocabulary, nor is there a running vocabulary, both of which you will find in Love and Transformation: An Ovid Reader.

Great book. All the best stories with lots of help on grammar for the beginner, plus some more in-depth notes for the more experienced college student.
