Musical Metamorphoses in the Roman World

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Certainly, some of the most memorable musical myths that we read today are those narrated by Ovid in the Metamorphoses. In them, one finds a complex interaction between various literary genres, each of which is related in some way to an instrument and a discourse of hierarchy and power. In addition, they highlight how the execution of the song itself has important effects on the listeners.
