The golden ass is a classic book filled with adventure, suspense, and humor.

The tale of Cupid & Psyches [i.e. Psyche] by Apuleius ( )
4 editions published between 1639 and 2012 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Tale of Cupid and Psyches first appeared as a digressionary story told by an old woman in Lucius Apuleius' novel, The Golden Ass, written in the second century A.D. Apuleius probably used an earlier tale as the basis for his story, modifying it to suit the thematic needs of his novel. Read on its own, it is for the most part a straightforward folktale.
