Elements of Book II

If Book I of Metamorphoses foregrounded rivers, water, earth, and a surfeit of embracing wetness, Book II is far more concerned with fire and air, with an excess of heat, and with those who think to "rise too high."

Theoi's table of contents for Book II -- click on the numbers to go to the tales:


1. Phaethon
2. Callisto & Jupiter
3. Coronis & Apollo
4. Ocyroe & Aesculapius
5. Battus & Mercury
6. Aglauros & Mercury
7. Europa & Jupiter
