The golden ass by Apuleius( Book )
123 editions published between 1890 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,330 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 )
118 editions published between 1786 and 2002 in 7 languages and held by 1,066 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

Der Goldene Esel des Apuleius (ca. 125-170 n.Chr.) ist der einzige Roman in lateinischer Sprache, den wir vollständig besitzen, und einer der ältesten Texte seiner Art in der europäischen Literatur. Der Ich-Erzähler Lucius schildert die spannenden Abenteuer, die er, nach einer Liebesnacht in einen Esel verwandelt, auf einer Reise in Griechenland bis zu seiner Rückverwandlung erlebt. In seinen Bericht sind mehrere erotische Geschichten eingelegt, darunter der berühmte Mythos von Amor und Psyche. Als ein bedeutendes Werk der Weltliteratur hat der Roman seit Beginn der Neuzeit Erzählprosa und Kunst immer wieder stark beeinflusst

12 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 335 libraries worldwide
" ... tells the tale of a certain Lucius, a young man who -- rather like his creator -- leads an itinerant life full of action and incident which ultimately lands him in trouble. His curiosity to discover the secrets of witchcraft (the biographical echoes continue) results in his metamorphosis into an ass. The novel then follows its unfortunate hero through a series of largely bruising, humiliating and hilarious exploits until he is restored to human form through the intervention of the goddess Isis."--Publisher's website
Apologia ; Florida ; De deo Socratis by Apuleius( Book )
6 editions published in 2017 in English and Latin and held by 323 libraries worldwide
"Apuleius, one of the great stylists of Latin literature, was born ca. 125 AD in Madauros to a politically prominent family and received an elite education in the provincial capital Carthage and at Athens, where he began a lifelong allegiance to Platonic philosophy. In the later 150s, he married Pudentilla of Oea, a wealthy widow, and seems to have enjoyed a distinguished public career in Africa and perhaps as an advocate in Rome. Although Apuleius is best known for his picaresque novel Metamorphoses or The Golden Ass (LCL 44, 453), he also wrote and declaimed on a wide variety of subjects. This edition contains the other surviving works of Apuleius that are considered genuine. Apologia is a speech in which Apuleius defends himself against in-laws who had accused him of having used sinister means, including magic, to induce Pudentilla to marry him. The Florida is a collection of twenty-three excerpts from speeches by Apuleius. De Deo Socratis (On Socrates' God) locates Socrates' invisible guide and protector (daimonion) within the more general concept of daimones as forces intermediary between gods and humans. This edition, new to the Loeb Classical Library, offers fresh translations and texts based on the best critical editions."--Publisher's description

The tale of Cupid and Psyche by Apuleius( Book )
15 editions published between 1639 and 2012 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
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
De philosophia libri by Apuleius( Book )
27 editions published between 1908 and 1991 in 3 languages and held by 145 libraries worldwide
Apuleius : rhetorical works by Apuleius( Book )
18 editions published between 1510 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"These rhetorical texts by Apuleius, second-century Latin writer and author of the famous novel Metamorphoses or Golden Ass, have not been translated in English since 1909. They are some of the very few Latin speeches surviving from their period, and constitute important evidence for Latin and Roman North African social and intellectual culture in the second century A.D. They are the work of a talented writer who is being increasingly viewed as the major literary artist of his time in Latin."
