Selections from Apuleius Metamorphoses V: An Edition for Intermediate Students: 11-24

Edited by Stuart R. Thomson



120 pages


Bloomsbury Classical Languages


Aimed at intermediate students reading the text for the first time, who have mastered the basics of Latin and are ready to start reading some Latin verse, this book provides selections from Apuleius' Metamorphoses V, specifically sections 11-24. The text is presented in Latin, with a vocabulary and commentary, and it relates the romance of Cupid and Psyche. The introduction details the historical and literary context of the text, Apuleius' literary techniques, and key terms, as well as key aspects of genre, literary sensibility, and intellectual and social outlook, and the notes address points of grammar and word order, the rhetorical construction of the narrative, and differences between Classical prose and Apuleius' later Latin.
