Apuleius and the Classical Canon book
I begin with the question, “Is Apuleius a canonical author?” Any answer that one might give would of course raise other questions; in the context of this volume, the most important of these would be whether Apuleius’ African origin enters into it. But before confronting that question, I have to address a few others that are more basic. For one can hardly get started on this problem without asking, what is the canon, and what forces govern its formation?
