Read BOOK THE FIFTH of The Metamorphoses of Ovid by Ovid. The text begins: FABLE I. While Perseus is continuing the relation of the adventures of Medusa, Phineus, to whom Andromeda has been previously promised in marriage, rushes into the palace, with his adherents, and attacks his rival. A furious combat is the consequence, in which Perseus gives signal proofs of his valor.   Metamorphoses by Ovid Written 1 A.C.E. Translated by Sir Samuel Garth, John Dryden, et al.

Summary. Ovid opens his poem by following the traditions of epic poetry: He begins Metamorphoses with an invocation to the gods, who have "wrought every change." He prepares to tell a "continuous song" from the world's beginning to his present time. When the world was created it came from Chaos, "a raw and undivided mass," without living creatures of any kind.   Ovid's Metamorphoses gains its ideal twenty-first-century herald in Stanley Lombardo's bracing translation of a wellspring of Western art and literature that is too often treated, even by poets, as a mere vehicle for the scores of myths it recasts and transmits rather than as a unified work of art with epic-scale ambitions of its own.
