Great Regulars: Titian's interpretations of Ovid's Metamorphoses

prompted a new collection of poems inspired by these arresting mythological scenes. Here we publish a suite of poems by Jo Shapcott, George Szirtes, Simon Armitage, Carol Ann Duffy, Lavinia Greenlaw, Seamus Heaney and Don Paterson. You can also listen to Jo Shapcott and George Szirtes read their poems and discuss transformation and how the gods always have the upper hand.
