Product Description

This thoroughly entertaining mixture of magic, farce, religion and mythology is the best-known work of Lucius Apuleius, who was born early in the second century A.D. in Morocco, then a Roman province. Written in the racy, extravagant style of the professional story-tellers of the time, it recounts the boisterous, often bawdy adventures of a young man who has the misfortune to be turned into an ass, falls into the hands of robbers, shares their fantastic exploits, and is finally turned back into a man by the Goddess Isis. Robert Graves has translated it into clear and readable modern English especially for Penguin
