Course Description

Apuleius' Metamorphoses (aka the Golden Ass) is the only ancient Latin novel to survive complete, an exploration of the dark underbelly of Roman imperial society, sex, violence, slavery, witchcraft, banditry, and unholy curiosity. In this course, we will read in Latin all of book 3, and large sections of the novella that occupies the center of the work, the Cupid and Psyche.
