DPF / Ovid

And then Persephone brings me around to Ovid and to my favorite part: Daedalus, the minotaur, the maze, Theseus, and Ariadne.

from The Metamorphoses of Ovid / by Ovid trans. by Allen Mandelbaum

in fact the artifex
himself could scarcely trace the proper path
back to the gate — it was that intricate.
