  1. Author: Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso)
    Title: Metamorphoses
    Date: c. 8 CE
    Genre: poetry
    Note Relating to Cather: In "Coming, Eden Bower!" after a confrontation with Eden about washing his dog in the bathtub she has to use, Don Ledger thinks "about man who was turned into a dog, or was pursued by dogs, because he unnwittingly intruded upon the bath of beauty." The reference is undoubtedly to the man who sees Diana naked, is turned into a stag, and is then killed by his own dogs.
