THE

SPEECHES

OF

AJAX AND ULYSSES:

FROM THE THIRTEENTH BOOK OF

OVID'S METAMORPHOSES.

THE chiefs were fet, the soldiers crown'd the

field :
To these the master of the sevenfold shield
Upstarted fierce : and kindled with disdain,
Eager to speak, unable to contain

• The Metamorphoses (as well as the Fafti of Ovid) have preserved, it must be owned, many curious particulars of ancient history, philofophy, and mythology. For Ovid was a great and learned antiquarian, which from the levity and sportiveness of some of his poems, one would not suspect. An old French translator of Ovid, Thomas Vallois, called the Metamorphoses, the Bible of the poets; his work was printed at Paris, in black letter, 1523. The Abbè Banier published a magnificent edition in 4to. 4 vols. 1767, with historical and mythological illustrations.Benserade made a kind of travestie of Ovid in Rondeaux, printed in 4to. with beautiful sculptures. The Abbè Bellegarde translated at the fame time Ovid's Metamorphoses, and the pious Thomas à Kempis. Perhaps he was ordered by his confeffur to undertake the latter work as an a&t of penance; as Dryden was ordered by his confessor to write the Hind and Panther, as an expiation for having written the Spanish Friar.
