Summary Medieval and early modern authors engaged with Ovid's tale of "Iphis and Ianthe" in a number of surprising ways. from Christian translations to secular retellings on the seventeenth-century stage, Ovid's story of a girl's miraculous transformation into a boy sparked a diversity of responses in English and French from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. In addition to analyzing various translations and commentaries, the volume clusters essays around treatments of John Lyly's Galatea (c.1585) and Issac de Benserade's Iphis et Iante (1637). As a whole, the volume addresses gender and transgender, sexuality and gallantry, anatomy and alchemy, fable and history, youth and pedagogy, language and climate change
