Add to cart
US$ 8.95
Is Cupid and Psyche a romance, a folktale, a Platonic allegory of the nature of the soul, a Jungian tale of individuation, or an archetypal dream? This volume provides Joel Relihan's lively translation of this best known section of Apuleius' Golden Ass, some useful and illustrative parallels, and an engaging discussion of what to make of this classic story.

Joel C. Relihan is Professor of Classics, Wheaton College, Norton, Massachusetts. In addition to Apuleius' The Golden Ass, he has translated Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy for Hackett Publishing Company.
