In this project for Latin 4, I created my own translation of a section from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. I chose the Pygmalion story from Book 10, and in particular, about 40 lines that depict the progression of Pygmalion’s commitment to his art, then infatuation with his statue, and then finally, his marriage to the statue when she comes to life.
