Summary This book aims to show the metamorphic nature of Ovid's reception in twentieth-century Italian literature. It is a study of the aesthetic effects of Ovid's poetics within both the novel and poetry tradition in Italy. By using a historical and philological methodology, the authors of each essay have shown the hermeneutic power of Ovid, read as a constant intertextual presence. From Giovanni Pascoli to Eugenio Montale, from Italo Calvino to Antonio Tabucchi, in this book Ovid's reception is finally shown to be as important as Virgil's and offers new important tools in order to understand the role of Latin literature in the twentieth century
