Dean Close Classics Department welcomed Dr Clemence Schultze, formerly of Durham University as she addressed an audience of classicists and pupils of History of Art. Dr Schultze investigated the myth of Cupid and Psyche, made famous by Apuleius in his Metamorphoses, the sole surviving novel from antiquity. She looked at the ways in which the myth had been reinterpreted during the 19th century, focusing on the works of the last pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burn-Jones and the novels of Charlotte Young and Sylvia Townsend-Warner.
