Tales from Ovid
Tales from Ovid is a poetical work written by the English poet Ted Hughes. Published in 1997 by Faber and Faber, it is a retelling of twenty-four tales from Ovid's Metamorphoses. It won the Whitbread Book Of The Year Award for 1997 and has been translated into several languages. It was one of his last published works along with Birthday Letters. Four of the tales were previously published in After Ovid, New Metamorphosis, edited by M. Hofmann and J. Ladun.
A stage adaptation was performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company in the autumn of 1999 at the Swan Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon. The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble has also performed dramatisations of excerpts from Hughes' book, between 2006 and 2008.
