Abstract

A wide range of readings into textual challenges within the Metamorphoses of Apuleius and how these relate to wider issues of cultural and literary thematics. The co-authored chapter focuses upon the balness of Lucius as a priest of Osiris and his earlier attempts to maintain and restore his dignity as both man and ass. The approach is both philosophical in its interpretation but keeps a sense of fun and satire about the hero's various physical and moral metamorphoses.
