APULEIUS MAGARUL DE AUR PDF

Comentarii Gloria castigata de Apuleius in timpul vietii i-a supravietuit si dupa moarte. In special Magarul de aur i-a perpetuat numele; chiar si cei care nu stiu nimic despre aceasta opera sau cei care ar prefera sa o treaca in uitare din cauza unor elemente indecente cunosc si apreciaza povestea lui Eros si Psyche — daca nu in original, atunci macar in numeroase opere de arta. Augustin ii cunoaste opera foarte bine; el recunoaste importanta lui Apuleius ca autor, insa il respinge ca magician. Apuleius este un taumaturg impotriva caruia credinciosii trebuie pusi in garda. Pentru a-si crea extraordinara sa reputatie, Apuleius avea nevoie de o epoca si de o audienta pentru care invatatura si literatura erau decadente, dar nicidecum trecute in uitare. El vadeste o curiozitate insatiabila, detine o rezerva enorma de cunostinte variate, iar ca orator are o stralucire alimentata de o imaginatie uluitoare.

Imagined portrait of Apuleius on a medallion of the 4th century. Apuleii Opera omnia Apuleius was born in Madauros, a colonia in Numidia on the North African coast bordering Gaetulia , and he described himself as "half-Numidian half-Gaetulian. As to his first name, no praenomen is given in any ancient source; [6] late-medieval manuscripts began the tradition of calling him Lucius from the name of the hero of his novel.

His father was a provincial magistrate duumvir [5] who bequeathed at his death the sum of nearly two million sesterces to his two sons. He subsequently went to Rome [9] to study Latin rhetoric and, most likely, to speak in the law courts for a time before returning to his native North Africa.

He also travelled extensively in Asia Minor and Egypt, studying philosophy and religion, burning up his inheritance while doing so. Apuleius was an initiate in several Greco-Roman mysteries , including the Dionysian Mysteries. Not long after his return home he set out upon a new journey to Alexandria. This is known as the Apologia A Discourse on Magic. Judging from the many works of which he was author, he must have devoted himself diligently to literature.

He occasionally gave speeches in public to great reception; he had the charge of exhibiting gladiatorial shows and wild beast events in the province, and statues were erected in his honor by the senate of Carthage and of other senates.

It is an imaginative, irreverent, and amusing work that relates the ludicrous adventures of one Lucius, who introduces himself as related to the famous philosophers Plutarch and Sextus of Chaeronea. Lucius experiments with magic and is accidentally turned into an ass. In this guise he hears and sees many unusual things, until escaping from his predicament in a rather unexpected way.

Within this frame story are found many digressions , the longest among them being the well-known tale of Cupid and Psyche. This story is a rare instance of a fairy tale preserved in an ancient literary text. He is introduced to the Navigium Isidis.

Between the traditional exordium and peroratio, the argumentation is divided into three sections: Refutation of the accusations leveled against his private life.

He demonstrates that by marrying Pudentilla he had no interested motive and that he carries it away, intellectually and morally, on his opponents. Attempt to prove that his so-called "magical operations" were in fact indispensable scientific experiments for an imitator of Aristotle and Hippocrates, or the religious acts of a Roman Platonist. A recount of the events that have occurred in Oea since his arrival and pulverize the arguments against him. The main interest of the Apology is historical, as the offers substantial information about its author, magic and life in Africa in the second century.

A compilation of twenty-three extracts from his various speeches and lectures. De Platone et dogmate eius On Plato and his Doctrine. A work on the existence and nature of daemons , the intermediaries between gods and humans. This treatise was attacked by Augustine of Hippo.

It contains a passage comparing gods and kings which is the first recorded occurrence of the proverb "familiarity breeds contempt": [24] parit enim conversatio contemptum, raritas conciliat admirationem familiarity breeds contempt, rarity brings admiration On the Universe.

This Latin translation of the work De Mundo is probably by Apuleius.
