In the Introduction to this first English translation of the Metamorphoses of Antoninus Liberalis, a mythographer of the early centuries C. However, with a considerable amount of at times good-natured self-deprecating humor and an array of enthusiastic and eclectic information, this book succeeds in being both accessible and informative for both the general reader and even the professional scholar in other disciplines who is interested in mythological variants. The notes do a good job covering essential and elementary information about the myths and the identities of gods and places. The information ranges from very detailed explanations of ornithological and mythological detail, to the very basic, such as the identity of Poseidon or the Muses. Especially helpful for many might be the extensive lists of parallel versions of the myths or stories included in the notes, ranging from such sources as other ancient Greek and Roman texts, to African tales, and Walt Disney. The translation of this completely inartistic Greek text is for the most part adequate.
