Les métamorphoses is a narrative poem by the Roman poet Ovid. It contains more than 250 myths and traces the history of the world from its creation to the deification of Julius Caesar.
Les Métamorphoses, one of the most influential works in Western culture, has inspired authors such as Dante Alighieri, Giovanni Boccace, Geoffrey Chaucer and William Shakespeare.
Numerous episodes of the poem have been described in works of sculpture, painting and music of great renown.
Although interest in Ovid faded after the Renaissance, interest in his work was increasingly renewed at the end of the 20th century.
