An introduction to the life, world, and works of Apuleius, North African writer of the second century CE. We will concentrate on his prose fiction METAMORPHOSES (also known as THE GOLDEN ASS), which moves from donkey-transformation to goddess-liberation. Magic, sexuality, and narrative wit abound. We will also read excerpts from the APOLOGIA, Apuleius' defense against charges of malicious magic. Prerequisites: Latin 3171 and Latin 3181 (or equivalent) and sophomore standing or above.
