Daphnis & Chloe by Longus( Book )

956 editions published between 1559 and 2013 in 13 languages and held by 4,394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LONGUS (whose very name is uncertain) is known to us only by his novel Daphnis and Chloe. He seems to have been a pagan sophist who lived about A.D. 200, possibly a Greek freedman in a Roman household. This romance recounts the adventures of two foundlings, brought up together by shepherds, from their infancy to their marriage. Unlike most examples of the genre, Daphnis and Chloe is concerned less with improbable incident than with the development of the main characters and their initiation into the secrets of human love. PARTHENIUS of Nicea in Bithynia, a Greek poet, was brought to Rome in 73 B.C. as a prisoner of war. After his release he settled in Italy and worked as a poet and teacher. Virgil was one of his pupils. Parthenius's poetry, mainly elegiac, is lost, and his only extant work is Erotica Pathemata, an anthology of prose summaries of love-stories from Greek literature, collected apparently for the use of Roman poets

In Longus's ravishing Daphnis and Chloe (second or early third century CE), one of the great works of world literature, an innocent boy and girl gradually discover their sexuality in an idealized pastoral environment. In Xenophon's Anthia and Habrocomes (first century CE), perhaps the earliest novel and a new addition to the Loeb Classical Library, a newlywed couple, separated by mischance, survive hair-raising adventures and desperate escapes as they traverse the Mediterranean and the Near East en route to a joyful reunion. The pairing of these two novels well illustrates both the basic conventions of the genre and its creative range. -- jacket

En l'île de Lesbos, chassant dans un bois consacré aux Nymphes, je vis la plus belle chose que j'aie vue en ma vie, une image peinte, une histoire d'amour. Le parc, de soi-même, étoit beau; fleurs n'y manquoient, arbres épais, fraîche fontaine qui nourrissoit et les arbres et les fleurs; mais la peinture, plus plaisante encore que tout le reste, étoit d'un sujet amoureux et de merveilleux artifice; tellement que plusieurs, même étrangers, qui en avoient ouï parler, venoient là dévots aux Nymphes, et curieux de voir cette peinture.

Daphnis and Chloe by Longus( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sole surviving bucolic novel of ancient Greek origin was written by Longus, a poet about whom nothing else is known, and dates to about the mid third century A.D. The lyrical beauty and sensual frankness of the story have found admirers from Shakespeare to Jacob Burckhardt, and have exerted lasting influence on European literature. It was not until 1810 that the first complete manuscript of Daphnis and Chloe was discovered, in Florence. This provided the basis for the present, superb translation, done in 1956 by Paul Turner

10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in German and Greek, Ancient and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auf der Insel Lesbos in einem Nymphenhain, so berichtet Longos in der praefatio zu den "Hirtengeschichten von Daphnis und Chloe", habe er ein Gemälde gesehen, "das die Geschichte einer Liebe darstellte". Nach diesem Vorbild habe er seinen Roman geschrieben, "als ein Weihgeschenk für Eros, die Nymphen und Pan", für alle Menschen aber als "erfreulichen Besitz..., der den Kranken heilen soll, den Trauernden trösten soll, den, der geliebt hat, süß erinnern und für den, der die Liebe noch nicht erfahren hat, eine Vorschule sein soll". Wer Logos war, wissen wir nicht, man vermutet heute, dass er um 200 n.Chr. gelebt hat. Sein kunstvoll gestalteter Roman gehört über die Jahrhunderte hin zu den Meisterwerken erotischer Dichtkunst: In Einklang mit der Natur und den göttlichen Mächten erfahren zwei junge Menschen das Erwachen und Aufblühen ihrer Liebe
