The golden ass by Apuleius( Book )

382 editions published between 1639 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 6,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With accuracy, wit, and intelligence, this remarkable new translation of The Golden Ass breathes new life into Apuleius's classic work. Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet as well as a highly respected translator, skillfully duplicates the verbal high jinks of Apuleius's ever-popular novel. It tells the story of Lucius, a curious and silly young man, who is turned into a donkey when he meddles with witchcraft. Doomed to wander from region to region and mistreated by a series of deporable owners, Lucius at last is restored to human form with the help of the goddess Isis. In a translation that is the most faithful and the most entertaining to date, Ruden reveals to modern readers the vivid, farcical ingenuity of Apuleius's style."--Inside jacket flap

Metamorphoses by Apuleius( Book )

285 editions published between 1500 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,897 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the "Metamorphoses" of Apuleius "The Golden Ass," we have the only Latin novel which survives entire. It is truly enchanting: a delightful romance combining realism and magic. The hero, Lucius, eager to experience the sensations of a bird, resorts to witchcraft but by an unfortunate pharmaceutical error finds himself transformed into an ass. He knows he can revert to his own body by eating rose-petals, but these prove singularly elusive; and the bulk of the work describes his adventures as an animal. He also retails many stories that he overheard, the most charming being that of Cupid and Psyche (beginning, in true fairy-tale fashion, '"Erant in quadam civitate rex et regina"'). Some of the stories are as indecent as they are witty, and two in the ninth book were deemed by Boccaccio worthy of inclusion in the "Decameron." At last the goddess Isis takes pity on Lucius. In a surprising denouement, he is restored to human shape and, now spiritually regenerated, is initiated into her mysteries. The author's baroque Latin style nicely matches his fantastic narrative and is guaranteed to hold a reader's attention from beginning to end

315 editions published between 1501 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Degli undici libri, i primi tre sono occupati dalle avventure del protagonista, il giovane Lucio (omonimo dell'autore, che forse proprio dal protagonista assunse il nome) prima e dopo il suo arrivo a Hypata in Tessaglia (tradizionalmente terra di maghi). Coinvolto già durante il viaggio nell'atmosfera carica di mistero che circonda il luogo, il giovane manifesta subito il tratto distintivo fondamentale del suo carattere, la curiosità, che lo conduce ad incappare nelle trame sempre più fitte di sortilegi che animano la vita della città. Ospite del ricco Milone e di sua moglie Pànfile, esperta di magia, riesce a conquistarsi i favori della servetta Fotide e la convince a farlo assistere di nascosto a una delle trasformazioni cui si sottopone la padrona. Alla vista di Pànfile che, grazie a un unguento, si muta in gufo, Lucio prega Fotide che lo aiuti a sperimentare su di sé tale metamorfosi. Fotide accetta, ma sbaglia unguento, e Lucio diventa asino, pur mantenendo facoltà raziocinanti umane. È questo l'episodio-chiave del romanzo, che muove il resto dell'intreccio. Lucio apprende da Fotide che, per riacquistare sembianze umane, dovrà cibarsi di rose: via di scampo che, subito cercata, è rimandata sino alla fine del romanzo da una lunga serie di peripezie che l'asino incontra
