Slavonic and East European Review

"Peter Barta's book gives us an in-depth insight into the abiding vitality of the Greek and Latin classic heritage in twentieth-century Russian culture and, by concentrating on a well-chosen selection of examples of the poetic exploitation of metamorphosis as subject, device and philosophical tenet, achives a sharpness of focus which might have been missing from a more general symposium on Greco-Roman mythical subtext."
