November 13 Metamorphoses 5 and 6 • Snakes- considered immortal(shed skin), Tiresias changes by knocking mating snakes apart- how does this lead to him becoming a woman? And then a man? • Actaeon-he breaks taboo- he sees something he shouldn’t see and as a result he gets transformed into a stag. In a lot of the cases, it is not the humans fault, it just happens. • Semele- similar story,- she sees Jupiter in true form, a thunderbolt, he is blending stories together that are similar. • Tiresias with substories.
