Description - The Golden Ass by Apuleius
Relihan uses rhythm and rhyme, alliteration, the occasional archaism, and devices of punctuation and typography, to create a sparkling, readable translation of Apuleius' great work that reproduces something of the linguistic and comic effects of the original Latin. A concise Introduction, judicious notes, and an Index of Motifs facilitate an appreciation of this parody of the ideal Greek romance.
