The Metamorphoses of Apuleius

by Judith K Krabbe | 01 September 1989
Hardback
Synopsis
One of the most notable achievements of ancient prose fiction, the Metamorphoses of Apuleius continues to intrigue readers. This study focuses on Apuleius' best-known work, but takes varied approaches to metamorphosis, exploring its use not only as a theme but as a literary technique. It breaks new ground by clearly demonstrating the close relationship between the Metamorphoses of Apuleius and the Metamorphoses of Ovid. It shows, too, the crucial significance of Isis for understanding Apuleius' mode of composition. Juxtaposing Apuleius' Metamorphoses with several works of modern literature, it also examines some of the transformations which the metamorphosis theme itself has undergone.
