Plot summary of the golden ass

Such an apology also allows Apuleius to excuse any foreign—in his case, African—idioms that might have found their way into his novel, but its intention most probably is to make the readers wonder at his highly rhetorical mastery of the language and to serve as a disguise for him. On this he sent Mercury to bring Psyche up to the heavenly assembly, and when she arrived, handing her a cup of ambrosia, he said, "Drink this, Psyche, and be immortal; nor shall Cupid ever break away from the knot in which he is tied, but these nuptials shall be perpetual. Psyche and Cupid reside in the same building but are separated and kept apart by Venus. I think it would have been better to maintain that style rather than the more sober Roman type used here, handsome though it is. As Lindsay says in his introduction, 'the effort of Lucius to shed his ass's skin can therefore be compared to mankind's effort to transfigure the cabbage of experience into the beautified rose

Apuleius Study Questions, The Golden Ass

The Golden Ass is one of the first, or the first, human-to-animal transformation stories that run in the same vein as Disney's Brother Bear and The Emperor's New Groove. It is the seed, the child within, that is transformed. Yes, and there was that later case between the two famous Greek generals, when the wise and learned Palamedes was falsely accused of treason and condemned to death and Ulysses was preferred to Ajax, greatest and most valiant of warriors. How does Lucius' reception of the story prepare readers for whatever adventures Lucius himself is about to undergo? In the middle of the text, Apuleius interpolates the story of Cupid and Psyche, a tale that functions as the keystone for the entire work. The Golden Ass is also an important forerunner of those famous literary compendiums of folktales, such as the Decameron and The Canterbury Tales.

Their skin was striped all over with livid scourge-scars; their wealed backs were crusted rather than clothed with their patchwork rags; some had no more covering than a bit of dangled apron; and every shirt was so tattered that the body was visible through the rents. A strapping young Roman named Lucius goes on a journey through Greece, gets himself transformed into a donkey and goes on wacky hijinks. Her father, unable to find a husband for her, goes to the oracle for advice. The Abduction of Psyche by William-Adolphe Bouguereau During Lucius's journey, the stories he hears are mostly told at the dinner table, around the fire, as a distraction on a long journey, or as a comfort to distraught kidnap victims. More mythology than anything else, The Golden Ass tells the story of a dude who gets utterly fucked time and time again, and-- in true mythic fashion-- is only delivered by the mercy of the gods.
