About the Author:

John J. Winkler was, at the time of his death in 1990, Associate Professor of Classics at Stanford University.

Review:

"In this scholarly and lively study, John J. Winkler tackles the elusive meaning of one of the most famous and most arcane works of classical literature. Applying methods intelligently derived from recent advances in French narratology, Winkler builds a persuasive case for a new look at Apuleius's discursive and historical strategies." -- Marc E. Blanchard, Comparative Literature

"This sophisticated, imaginative, erudite work belongs on the shelf of every classicist interested in literary theory, popular culture, satire, or religion." -- Amy Richlin, Classical World

"Winkler's book is a magnificent performance: quite apart from a mighty range of classical learning, and a style full of sophistication, verve and personality, he deploys with authority and with such clarity as is possible a sensitive and largely jargon-free modern narratology philologorum in usum." -- Ken Dowden, The Classical Review
