The Greek bucolic poets by Theocritus( Book )

133 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

THEOCRITUS of the third century B.C., born at Syracuse, travelled widely in the Greek world. Having studied poetry at Cos under poet and critic Philitas, he composed poetry under patronage, chiefly perhaps at Syracuse and Cos; and then went to Alexandria in Egypt, whose King Ptolemy II (died 246 B.C.), pupil of Philitas, befriended him. Here (and at Cos?) he spent the rest of his life. Most lovable of Greek verse-makers, as the founder of bucolic or pastoral poetry Theocritus was supreme in his simple literary domain, though only part of his poetry is pastoral and he used predecessors and contemporaries. Of his so-called Idylls 'Little forms' or pieces (not all are genuine) ten are about pastoral life real or idealised; several are small epics (charming in parts; three are hymns); two are beautiful 'occasional' poems (one about a country-walk, one to accompany a gift of a distaff for the wife of his friend Nicias;) six are love-poems; several are mimes (one famous for vivid realism and modernity, another 'The Spell' equally unforgettable) being striking pictures of common life; and three are specially expressive of his own feelings. The 24 'Epigrams' (nearly all are good and look genuine) were apparently inscribed on works of art

Daphnis & Chloe by Longus( Book )

73 editions published between 1916 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 1,452 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
