Furthermore, I will also compose about their reasons of transformation from one metamorphosis to another metamorphosis, such as the spirit change into a camel, then the camel becoming the lion and then at the end the lion becoming the child.
In the Purgatory’s last round, Dante says goodbye to Virgil and follows, accompanied by an angel that takes him through a fire that separates the purgatory of the earthly paradise. Finally, on the banks of Lethe, Dante meets Beatrice and purifies, bathing in the river so he can continue his journey up to the stars.

Conclusion Ovid's Metamorphoses is a collection of poems chronicling the history of the creation of the world, according to the poet written in the 8th Century CE. Percy Jackson and the Olympians is a mythological fiction series by Rick Riordan and through its modern writing depicts the story of the life of a young Demigod written in the 21st Century CE. Both these texts are as far away from each other in terms of era, language, genre and aimed demographic as can be. However, through the common thread of belief and culture, what should have been lost and forgotten has not only endured but has revitalized with renewed vigour. Therefore, it is evident that the old concept of Gods, Goddesses, Deities and Demigods have not only been re-popularised, but they also remain true to their lineage of more than a thousand years prior.
