Metamorphoses: Tales of Change

Classic Tales are storytelling resources created by CSCP in partnership with tellers Hugh Lupton and Daniel Morden. Based on "The Metamorphoses" by the Roman poet Ovid (1st century CE), Tales of Change provides 20 oral retellings of famous Greek myths, ranging from ancient stories of creation to the deceptive relationships between the gods and humankind. 

Ovid's stories often return to the themes of change and transformation: this is the meaning of the word "metamorphoses". They explore the unpredictable nature of fate and the ways people strive to make sense of themselves and the world they live in, themes that are echoed in much of world literature and continue to inspire storytellers across the globe today.
