Apollo and Daphne

The latest post from Pantheon Poets is the story of Apollo and Daphne from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. In Ovid’s version, Apollo’s overwhelming love for the reluctant nymph is caused by Cupid as revenge when Apollo has poked fun at his bow, but the consequences for Daphne could not be more serious.
