Ovids 'Metamorphosen' [GER]

Hurry - Only 3 left in stock!
English summary: Ovid's Metamorphoses, one of the most influential books in world literature, provides an infinite source of inspiration for poets, painters, musicians and psychologists. Between the quest for identity and its loss, man keeps changing while also transforming his environment. The principle of metamorphosis influences cities, kingdoms, gods, religions and even the appearance of the earth. In this study, key motifs are made accessible through individual interpretation. The focus lies on the text's literary qualities, not least the overall structure consisting of three books in five parts, each of which forms an individual reading unit, a fact that has barely been taken into consideration thus far. Fifteen classical engravings also allow for a fresh approach to the work as a whole. German description: Ovids 'Metamorphosen', eines der folgenreichsten Bucher der Weltliteratur, sind als Fundgrube des Mythos eine unerschopfliche Inspirationsquelle fur Dichter, Maler, Musiker und Psychologen. Zwischen Identitatssuche und -verlust wandelt sich der Mensch standig und verwandelt seine Umwelt. Das Prinzip Metamorphose bestimmt Stadte, Reiche, Gotter, Religionen, ja das Erscheinungsbild der Erde. Einzelinterpretationen erschliessen zentrale Themen, so Kreativitat und Gefahrdung des Menschen. Orpheus leistet als Kunstler Ubermenschliches, scheitert aber an seiner ubergrossen Liebe. Perfekte technische Spezialisierung fuhrt fur Arachne zum Verlust der Menschennatur. Aus dem Jager Actaeon wird ein gejagtes Wild: eine kafkaeske Erfahrung, die Ovids Verbannungsschicksal vorwegnimmt. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt literarischen Qualitaten, nicht zuletzt dem Gesamtaufbau aus dreimal funf Buchern, deren jedes eine Leseeinheit bildet (was bisher weniger beachtet wurde). Funfzehn alte Stiche ermoglichen einen frischen Zugang zum Ganzen.
