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.

Buy The Golden Ass by Apuleius from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
