I bought this copy of Ovids Metamorphoses when I was living in Rome. Its the book I was reading on the plane when I left Rome, as the realization sunk in that an awesome and strange adventure was drawing to a close, and its the book I was still reading when I moved back to Minneapolis and attempted to readjust to life as a Midwestern college undergrad.I was reading Metamorphoses at the cafe a few blocks away from my apartment when a strange man gave me that little terror of a kitten, Monster. And Monster used to bite my toes when I was reading Metamorphoses in bed.I was in love, so much in love, when I read Metamorphoses, with someone I would surely never meet again.

And I was so lonely. And Metamorphoses was just beautiful, all the forlorn humans going up against the gods, only to be transformed into plants, animals, birds~To read the great Roman poet while living in Rome, and to continue reading him while you are in mourning for the city once its gone ~ was outrageous. In the best way. Grand. Epic. Eternal.
