Biographie de l'auteur :

Apuleius (sometimes called Lucius Apuleius; c. 125 – c. 180) was a Latin prose writer. He was Numidian Berber, from Madaurus (now M'Daourouch, Algeria). He studied Platonist philosophy in Athens; travelled to Italy, Asia Minor and Egypt; and was an initiate in several cults or mysteries. The most famous incident in his life was when he was accused of using magic to gain the attentions (and fortune) of a wealthy widow. He declaimed and then distributed a witty tour de force in his own defense before the proconsul and a court of magistrates convened in Sabratha, near Tripoli. This is known as the Apologia. His most famous work is his bawdy picaresque novel, the Metamorphoses, otherwise known as The Golden Ass. It is the only Latin novel that has survived in its entirety. It relates the ludicrous adventures of one Lucius, who experiments with magic and is accidentally turned into a donkey.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Lucius, a roman nobleman, travels to Thessaly and, while staying at the house of rich old miser Milo, begins a love affair with Milo’s slave Fotis after learning that Milo’s wife is skilled in black magic. One night Lucius convinces Fotis to sneak him into her mistress’s room and he watches as she transforms herself into an owl. Fotis takes a box of the potion she used to transform and gives it to Lucius, but when Lucius takes the potion he is turned into an ass (a donkey that is). Just then, Bandits break into Milo’s house and take the newly transformed Lucius with them as they escape. What follows is a series of misadventures, always violent and often sexual in nature, as bad luck seems to follow the Ass Lucius wherever he goes.
