    of metamorphosis anticipate and overlap modern and contemporary stories of posthuman transformation. The Posthuman In the last decade the theoretical trope of the posthuman has upped the ante on the notion of the postmodern. The common ef-fect of its several definitions is . The theory of evolution marks a recent moment in the long history of narratives of bodily metamorphosis, a modern moment when scientific discourse presented new and persuasive explanations for divergences in the forms of living beings.

The central, overriding theme of The Metamorphosis is just what the title implies- transformative change. To get a grasp of Ovid’s proto-posthumanism it’s perhaps best to start near the very end of his epic work in B and with the figure of Pythagoras.
