I'm reading the Inferno (a blast) and the frequent references to the Metamorphoses are making me want to fill that gap. Came looking for recs on translations. I usually look/hope for a relatively faithful translation - with the Inferno I'm reading Durling/Martinez, and I'm really enjoying the notes, while the Cantos are pretty easy to read. I read Larimer for the Iliad and Odyssey. I do enjoy off-the-wall translations - Anne Carson's translations are fun reads. I've seen Slavitt brought up as an looser one for Ovid - what have you read, what are its merits?

Wrong. Mad Men is the offical show of /lit/.
