    1. A shepherd and a shepherdess fall in love in those ancient days before this became a literary trope.They are even innocent than the sheep they herd and have no idea how to satisfy their feelings They ask an old woman for help She cackles and tells them that they have to sleep together So the couple go back to the field, lie down together and fall asleep They wake up and feel as unsatisfied as before.Oh, and as so often in the literature of this period there are some pirates too.Enjoyable.

    2. This was my first classical novel, having only read plays poems beforehand Daphnis and Chloe has been cited by many booktubers whose opinions on classical literature I trust as a great place to start with literature from antiquity, and the premise of this book was too good to pass up.Daphnis and Chloe is a very sweet tale of Daphnis a 15 year old goatherd and Chloe a 13 year old shepherdess who fall in love without understanding what Love is Through a series of bizarre and comedic mishaps and wi [...]

    5. Things like this make me lament the difference in curriculum between what I studied in school in the US and what my friend studied in Italy in Lecce At least I m aware that I missed out, and so I have to fill in the gaps The way I do so is through this the Penguin Classics list I found on see below for the links And this is exactly one of the kinds of books that make me glad to have this list to refer to when I choose the next book to read especially since most of them are free and I can put the [...]

    6. The adolescent,real pure love,the discovery of sensuality,the birth of sexuality,the exploration of one another body,is one of the most beautiful and tender events in the life of a human being yet no ever happens and if it do, mostly only one time, and by that is a intemporal subject of novels and poetry.This pastoril bucolic novel ,written in Adrianos time,located in the Lesbos island ,near the turkish coast,tells all this with a lot of references to grek mithology and with happy end.Is strikin [...]

    9. This early pastoral romance dating from the second or third century A.D is both entertaining in itself and a good corrective to the received wisdom that the novel is a quintessential invention of Cervantes or capitalism or Protestantism or the eighteenth century Though brief and beholden to the boys meets loses gets girl conventions of the Hellenistic romance, Daphnis and Chloe is recognizable as a novel its protagonists learn and grow, deepening their sense of their world and how its constraint [...]

    10. Picking up something that was written in the 2nd century is always going to bring with it some worries that it will be far too archaic to possibly understand or enjoy now Credit therefore has to go to the translation done, in this edition, by Phiroze Vasunia for making this so utterly readable, even by modern standards There wasn t a single point I felt the language or tone were outdated, confusing or dense, and the story itself was fun and charming, as we follow two young people who must go up [...]

    11. Daphnis and Chloe was entirely enjoyable to read, and definitely sparked a bit of a revival in an interest of classical ancient literature, of which I d read very little in recent times I wasn t sure what to expect going in, but I immediately noticed a dream like tone to the narration, with Longus touching on timeless and universal themes, and exploring intimacy while also maintaining a certain vacuum of innocence It is also quite funny, and on multiple I occasions I laughed and then marveled at [...]

    12. Trata se de um romance do s c II d.C passado na ilha grega de Lesbos, desconhece se por completo o perfil do autor, que ficou conhecido como Longus nos apresentada a hist ria de amor de Dafnis e Clo que, abandonados ainda beb s, foram encontrados por dois casais de pastores O primeiro casal deu com Dafnis num bosque sobre a erva, tendo junto de si uma cabra que o amamentava, e Clo foi encontrada pelo segundo casal numa gruta, aos cuidados de uma ovelha Cresceram e tornaram se ambos pastores do s [...]

    13. One of the great ironies of world literature is that the sole extant novel by the Greek author Longus is actually quite short Okay, now that I ve gotten that out of my system Daphnis and Chloe is one of the quintessential works of the Hellenistic period, and it s tempting to conclude with the classicists of the 19th century, reading this trifle, that Hellenism was a period of decadence in Greek culture We ve come a long way from Aeschylus and Homer, to this artful pastoral diversion written for [...]

    15. Quality Rating Four StarsEnjoyment Rating Three StarsI m not really sure what I feel about this one While I enjoyed the mythological style, I feel like it s hard to appreciate Daphnis and Chloe without studying it something that I m not doing As someone reading it for fun I was a little distant from what was happening This poem centres around two young lovers who are unaware of how to make love to each other, and their displays of affection and concern for each other leading up to their marriage [...]

    16. I bought this book twenty years and took it with me to Greece, as it seemed appropriate reading matter for a bucolic holiday.It is one of the seven surviving novels, five Greek and two in Latin, from Classical Times This is one of the Greek ones and it s one of the best of the seven I plan to read them all again.It s an utterly charming story about two young foundlings who grow up together and fall in love It s typical of the style of the Ancient Greek novels, being full of adventures, pirates, [...]

    17. The most original, and in my opinion, most beautiful love story ever put into words do not take that statement too seriously, I ve probably read a total of 3 or 4 love stories in my lifetime and 2 of them were probably about animals or trees and whatnot I m mildly obsessed with Ancient Greece, and somehow I am grateful for the survival of this text than any other Additionally, the tale is highly relevant to all genders, species, ages, etc If you read the novel in its entirety, you will realize [...]

    18. Extremely naive teenagers fall in love while goat sheep herding and sloooowwwllllyyyyy explore their relationship There is a lot of drama intermingling gods, pirates, angry rich kids, jealous neighbours and quite some crying in desperation Even though the story went a bit too slow to my liking, I still enjoyed reading Daphnis and Chloe, especially because of the way the author described the surroundings and the way it gave me some insight in Grecian culture.

    21. This was a beautiful work of literature The images and characters were very memorable It had an earthy tone to it and was a great book to pick up for a single sitting that could be read and enjoyed many times again It reminds me so much of what love feels like to the young.

    22. This could do with a vigorous translation, it s so matter of fact It seems that during the translation a little depth to the story was lost and every now and then their is the odd moment that shines through.The hunt is on for a better translation.
