Invocation And The Creation
The story begins with Ovid begging the gods to give him insight and be able to retell all of their stories and experiences. After that he recounts the story of how the universe was created. It starts with chaos and how all things were brought to equilibrium, which can also be called a metamorphoses of all things.
