Roman Epics XXIII: Ovid’s Metamorphoses Book 2, or Hold Your Tongue!

Any number of individuals get in trouble for speaking rashly in Book 2 of Metamorphoses.

Discussion Prompts

  1. Why is Juno so upset about Jupiter’s creation of Ursa Major and Ursa Minor?
  2. What would you do if you were the Raven?
  3. What does the story of Phaethon have to say about generations? Parenting? Hubris?
  4. What do you think of the transformation of Phaethon’s sisters? How does this compare to the transformation of Niobe?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
