Works Cited and Consulted

I consulted a number of sources for this project, which was originally written as a final project for a class my sophomore year of college. Everything we read during the spring semester of 1997 for the Princeton University course CLA 212, Classical Mythology, was valuable as background material, especially Ovid's Metamorphoses. The course was taught by Prof. Ruth Webb, who was an excellent lecturer; I was fortunate to have her as my preceptor as well. I was a geology major, but Prof. Webb's mythology course was one of my favorite classes at Princeton.
