Ovidian dreams

In Ovid's Metamorphoses human transformations into other beings might be caused by the fury of a god, as a vengeful punishment for a human weakness or virtue.

In Under the Walnut Tree*, my novel, human transformation is not the consequence of a god's fury but of a human conflict and a desire for a different vital experience.

As old as human wondering, human transformation into an animal has been a fantastic dream, an expression of the human mind and its conflicts with itself and reality.

Animals are mysterious creatures and a constant reminder of our own unfathomable nature.
