    Kindle Join or create book clubs ´ Metamorphoses eBook ✓ ´ metamorphoses download, penguin ebok, classics epub, Metamorphoses KindleI very much enjoyed the translation It is clear lively and poetic both in form and senseThis work is important as a treasure trove of mythological material and transformation of the self It is deeply mystical and also important to the study of classical mythology There is so much in the book that it is hard to summarize what I like about it in a review It is an important work well translated If that was all I'd give it 5 starsHowever the book design is another matter The book wastes a LOT of whitespace and adds unnecessary line breaks which are jarring to the reading of the poetry I have to wonder whether this was motivated by price larger book higher cost or whether it was just simply due to lack of review of alternatives For example a slightly wider page
