In AD 8, Publius Ovidius Naso, the poet Ovid, was exiled from Rome by emperor Augustus for composing verses that touched on scandal in the imperial court. Famously grief-stricken, he burnt his manuscript of what would become one of the world's most celebrated anthologies of verse tales, Metamorphoses, which only survived because his friends circulated their copies of it. To celebrate Ovid's 2,000th anniversary, 100 poets were invited to respond to Metamorphoses with new poems that explore the many contemporary resonances in that seminal work.
