This volume examines the figure of Ovid who emerges from the hands of contemporary women writers whose works are underpinned by third-wave feminism. Through the political and social engagement demonstrated by a range of writers - from Yoko Tawada to Alice Oswald, Ali Smith to Marie Darrieussecq, Saviana Stanescu to Marina Warner - Ovid speaks of internet pornography, of anorexia, of the financial crisis, and of refugees. The incisive case studies offered in this book not only provide new insights into the selected women writers, but also reveal an Ovid who remains our contemporary as his myths are re-shaped and re-contextualized within the twenty-first century.
