7 editions published between 1923 and 1975 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Achilles Tatius' Leucippe and Clitophon (composed in the second century AD) is the most bizarre and risque of the five 'Greek novels' of idealized love between boy and girl that survive from the period of the Roman empire. Stretching the capacity of the genre to the limits, Achilles' narrative covers adultery, violence, evisceration, pederasty, virginity-testing, and, of course, an improbable happy ending. Ingenious and sophisticated in conception, Leucippe and Clitophon is, in execution, at once subtle, stylish, moving, brash, tasteless, and obscene. This new translation aims to capture the exuberant variety of the writing. Detailed notes explain obscurities to the non-specialist and address more complex problems for the benefit of the student and the scholar. An introduction sets Achilles Tatius in his historical and literary contexts."--Jacket
