The Golden Ass

Translated with introduction and explanatory notes by P. G. Walsh

Oxford World's Classics

  • One of the truly seminal works of European literature
  • The only work of fiction in Latin to have survived from antiquity

New to this Edition:

  • New translation at once faithful to the meaning of the Latin, while reproducing all the exuberance of the original.
