Abstract

This paper discusses the problem of Apuleius’ intromission in the fictional world of his novel (Met. 11.27), where the adjective Madaurensem, which refers to the hometown of Apuleius instead of that of the protagonist, disrupts the coherence of the diegetic world. The first part of the article consists in a critical discussion of various scholarly interpretations; in the second part, the author offers a different narratological analysis through the conceptual tool of metalepsis and, finally, he formulates a new hypothesis for interpreting the passage.
