Tuesday Treasure: Cupid and Psyche. The story of Love and the Soul in Leeds

Participatory Event

Description

The story of Cupid and Psyche forms the centrepiece of the second-century Latin novel Metamorphoses, or "The Golden Ass".


Join the beautiful princess Psyche through trials and tribulations involving jealous sisters, a husband of mysterious identity, and an epic-style journey to the Underworld. Will the princess unite with her true love? Explore illustrated versions of Apuleius’ epic love story from Special Collections to find out...


From Boccaccio’s Christian allegorical interpretation to sensuous Art Deco illustrations and William Morris’ beautiful woodcuts, samples of this well-known tale will be on display to read and explore.


Material in this month’s Tuesday Treasure has been selected by Dr Regine May, University of Leeds.
