I love myths and not because so many of the old myths and fairy tales have handspinners in them. That’s just a bonus for me. I love the old stories because in them, people are fools just like they are today. Its nice to know that our smart phones and fast food haven’t changed us much.
There are other versions of Arachne’s story but this is one is the best. Mine is an absolutely faithful and 100% accurate retelling of the tale you’ll find in Ovid’s Metamorphosis (Book 6). Really. There is no need at all you you to go read Ovid, the greatest of all the Roman poets. It would simply be a waste of your time.
