Roman Epics XXIV: Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Book 3, or Those Ancient Gods Are Vindictive

Listen to Tiresias, if you know what’s good for you.

Discussion Prompts

  1. Does anyone deserve their fate? Who? Why or why not?
  2. What would you do if you were Tiresias?
  3. What does this book have to say about the role of the gods in the lives of mortals?
  4. What does this book say to us today about fate? Life? Anything else?
  5. How would you tell the story of Echo from her perspective?

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.
