Completely reformatted for optimal reading on an electronic reader.
The text of this e-book is based on the Chatto and Windus edition of the Works of George Chapman: Poems and Minor Translations.
We have limited each page to one stanza, and where possible notes are provided on the same page as the verse they refer to. This is to facilitate ease of reference, and is unique to this edition. Notes are indicated by a bracketed letter: eg [a]. The footnotes include omitted or additional text, together with material useful to the general reader. Occasionally we refer to the Oxford English Dictionary for a definition: these extracts are flagged as ‘OED’. We have attempted to hyperlink all non-fiction secondary material to its original source via archive.org.
References to Ovid’s Metamorphoses are to the two-volume Loeb edition translated by Frank Justus Miller.
