Lucius, a highborn man, is turned into an ass and stolen by brigands. He goes through a series of misadventures and, being an ass, cannot talk to, but only listen to those he meets. Among several tales he is most attracted to the story of Cupid and Psyches, offspring of archaic divinities and themselves mythical figures, who embrace in a love scene helped by darkness, which becomes the signifier of a transformation. The story lets us into the tones of the love romance and in the imaginary and symbolic world of the artistic, sexual and cultural changes of the century in question.
