David Horovitch's richly enunciated delivery is a superb vehicle for the classical style, with its elevated diction and its elaborate rhetorical and poetic figures. Ovid poses a special challenge, and only a reader with expert pacing, matched with a sensitivity to nuances of tone and language, could deliver this text to its full impact. This Ovid is a delight. Horovitch expresses both Ovid's elegance and his lightness of touch. A word like 'nectar' drips with honeyed sweetness, and even 'water' sounds multisyllabic. Ovid's tales of change and transformation 'Actaeon into a stag, Zeus into a bull, the whole of reality in a constant state of metamorphosis' offer as enduring a vision as any in literature. Horovitch has a great voice for the classics. --D.A.W., AudioFileI hadn't realised before what a comprehensive collection of stories it contains: Greek and Roman myths, but also Roman history up to the time of Julius Caesar. One story leads to another like Chinese puzzle balls, some tragic, some erotic, some satirical. No wonder it has been influential ever since it was completed in AD8. David Horovitch's warm, trenchant voice is perfect for Johnston's graceful and natural-sounding lines. --Christina Hardyment, The Times --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
