Apuleius: THE GOLDEN ASS
LAT 254
Spring 2012
Section: 01  

Fast-paced, magical, sexy, and bizarre, Apuleius' GOLDEN ASS, or METAMORPHOSES, contains more than enough rowdy episodes to keep us entertained for a semester. The novel tells the story of the feckless Lucius, the man-turned-ass whose encounters with the residents of Thessaly range from the vulgar to the weird to the sublime. Our goals, in addition to reading and understanding the Latin, include tracing prominent themes and becoming acquainted with recent relevant scholarship.

Essential Capabilities: Writing
LAT 254 will require students to write several short responses to readings in modern scholarship on Apuleius; students will also write a final paper for the course based on their own research interests.
