The Golden Ass
One of the more interesting stories that we had to read this semester was The Golden Ass. It is one of those stories that combines many of the elements that I learned of in another class. That is to say, it is a prime example of stories within stories. The most obvious is the story of Cupid and Psyche mixed in with the primary story of a man who has been turned into a donkey.
