  Metamorphoses - Mary Zimmerman
In Book XV of his Metamorphoses, Ovid predicts, "I shall be read, and through all the centuries…I shall be living, always."

Myth as public dream, dream as private myth, this is the world of Ovid that Zimmerman and her cohorts bring vividly to life on the stage, and in the pool.

 SparkNotes: Metamorphoses: Context
By writing the Metamorphoses in dactylic hexameter, the meter of epic, Ovid intentionally invited comparisons with the greatest Roman poet of his age, Virgil, who had written the epic the Aeneid.
In content, however, the Metamorphoses has little in common with such epics as the Aeneid, which are characterized by a single story line and one main protagonist.
The Metamorphoses more closely resembles the work of Hesiod and the Alexandrian poets, who favored a collection of independent stories connected by a theme.
