The Place of Ovid in the Classical Humanities Curriculum.
Traditionally neglected in the classical humanities curriculum, Ovid is recommended as a writer worthy of inclusion in Latin programs at the sophomore and junior levels in high schools. As one possible strategy for survival of the classical humanities curriculum, the author argues that the writings of Ovid be included on the grounds that they are contemporary and relevant to current social issues. The author specifically feels that Ovid's "Metamorphoses" should be taught as an entire work and that the influence of Ovid upon other writers should be stressed in the continuing quest for relevance in the curriculum.
