I have a question that maybe Latin boy (CL) can address or someone else... What is the deal with the Romans and rape? Seriously, the Metamorphosis is riddled with the constant rape of woman by the gods. And then people are punished for their own rapes. Is there some nuanced way to look at this, because when I read it all I could think of was the sheer barbarism....?
