Abstract

Re-evaluates the short narrative in Ovid's Metamorphoses,dealing with the flaying of Marsyas by Apollo. This is not merely a violent graphic moment but has a subtext about life and free speech under Augustus and the punitive nature of transformation and destruction, reconstruction of an offending body to celebrate the power and personality of the gods.
