Also called Apuleius of Madaura. His most famous work Metamorphoses, but more commonly called The Golden Ass, is thought to contain many autobiographical anecdotes in spite of the fact that it is obviously a work of fiction. Probably the most famous part of this work is the section entitled Cupid and Psyche, which has been greatly imitated by later authors. Both Boccaccio and Cervantes have taken some of Apuleius' adventures and incorporated them into their own works.
