humor in this most amusing, and sometimes ribald tale of a
man's transformation (literally and figuratively) from man
Dabbling in occult matters, the young man is tranformed into
an ass. He recounts the many adventures that he has while in
this state, from circus performer to beast of burden where
he hears the story of Cupid and Psyche (the most extant
version we have.) Eventually our hero is returned to a manly
state (I don't want to give too much away) with the help of
a mysterious female figure.
