Beginning on Stage. Another Interpretation of the Prologue of Apuleius’ Metamorphoses

Abstract : This paper aims to reconsider the problem of the speaker’s identity in the first lines of Apuleius’ Metamorphoses: who is the person, in the prologue, who says ‘I’? This problem is intertwined with two precise exegetical questions, to which a satisfactory answer has not yet been given: the first concerns the aporia introduced by the expression quis ille, the second has to do with the interpretation of the sentence iam haec equidem ipsa vocis immutatio desultoriae scientiae stilo quem accersimus respondet. The author first examines the problem as well as the solutions suggested by scholars so far. He then proceeds to present a new exegetical hypothesis aimed at solving the difficulty.
