The ensuing story has Daphnis fending another suitor of Chloe, fighting pirates and to raising money for the dowry of his bride-to-be. Yet, there is an interesting twist to the plot of their parentage.

Longus will be remembered for this love story, handed down to us through papyri discovered in a cave.4/5(11). 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.

And now advising together about their intended wedding, it was, they thought, the best way, still to conceale it, and to hide Chloe in some hole or other, then to. Daphnis and Chloe book. Read 8 reviews from the world's largest community for readers/5(8). A tender novel describing eager and inept young love, Daphnis and Chloe tells the story of a baby boy and girl who are discovered separately, two years apart, alone and exposed on a Greek mountainside.
