Peter Knox, the Eric and Jane Nord Family Professor and director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University, will discuss Ovid's exile poetry.
Knox's research interests focus primarily on Latin poetry and Greek poetry of the Hellenistic period. He has published over a hundred articles and reviews on a wide range of subjects. His books include "Ovid’s Metamorphoses and the Traditions of Augustan Poetry" (1986); "Ovid, Heroides: Select Epistles" (1995); "Oxford Readings in Ovid" (2006); and "A Companion to Ovid" (2009). Most recently he co-edited "The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature" (2013). He is also working on a companion anthology of Greek literature.
Knox's other projects include an edition of the Greek and Latin poetry of Angelo Poliziano, forthcoming in the "I Tatti Renaissance Library," and a new edition of Ovid’s "Metamorphoses" for the Loeb Classical Library. He has served as the editor of The Classical Journal and is a past president of the Classical Association of the Middle West and South.
