I wonder whose translation Bob prefers to read. Anyone have a favorite? I’m looking for modern English translations for Metamorphoses and The Art of Love. Too many choices.

I believe Richard Thomas states in Why Dylan Matters that Bob reads Peter Green´s translations.

"On October 10, 2006, Cliff Fell, a New Zealand poet and teacher of creative writing, wrote in the Nelson Mail (Nelson, New Zealand) of a striking discovery. He happened to be reading Peter Green’s Penguin translation of Ovid’s exile poetry,
6 the Tristia and the Epistulae ex Ponto (Black Sea Letters), while listening to Modern Times"

Peter Green only has three books of translations out there, correct?

According to his wikipedia he has at least 7:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Green_(historian)#Works

I notice 5 books labeled as translation (The 2 Homer's, Life of Jesus, 16 Satires, Argonautica).

Then I add the 2 Ovid books which don’t have that label for some reason (Erotic Poems, Poems of Exile).

I just meant Ovid translations. I thought he did at least one more.
