Summary
Ovid's 'Heroides', written in Rome some time between 25 and 16 BC, was once his most popular work. The title translates as 'Heroines', and it's a series of poems in the voices of women from Greek and Roman myth - including Phaedra, Medea, Penelope and Ariadne - addressed to the men they love. Clare Pollard's new translation rediscovers Ovid's 'Heroines' for the 21st century, with a cast of women who are brave, bitchy, sexual, suicidal, horrifying, heartbreaking and surprisingly modern
