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 mish This was my first classical novel, having only read plays poems beforehand Daphnis and Chloe has been cited

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 with a little help from Pan and the Nymphs , they learn about love and find their true happiness as well as something about themselves to boot This was very easy to read, which was a great surprise I usually approach classical literature with some trepidation, but Longus novel was intensely readable I put this all down to the excellent translation by Ronald McCail, and would recommend picking up this particular Oxford World s Classics edition The only thing that I found a little disrupting to my reading experience was having to constantly refer to the notes throughout there were a lot It made reading a little disjointed at times However, having read it once, if I do go back to this text I won t have to refer to the notes the second time around, which should make for afluid reading experience However, the notes are well worth reading as they provide some great background information on certain words and passages.Overall I highly enjoyed this read It was fun and ,despite the subject matter, not crude in the slightest This has made meexcited to readclassical literature So classical lit fans, feel free to chuck recommendations at me Aww such a lovely, romantic and erotic tale of young love and the trials and tribulations that it entails Pirates, masters ,Gods, nymphs, and Pan all have parts to play in this story of a goatherd who loves a shepherdess in times long ago

striking in this novel not contamined with the christian or at least catholic concept of sexual morality,the exquisite delicacy in describing the sexuality, mostly by using metaphores and ellipses,also is striking,or no so much in that time, the natural treatment of homosexuality and the value of virginity.Is a beautiful novel ,permeated by inocence ,ingenuity and simplicity.The arquetipe of the coming bucolic or not, adolescent love novels.I am thinking that perhaps this novel has influenced another classic novel over adolescent love,Paul and Virginie by Bernardine Saint Pierre,similar in circustances and environement,yet here there are not,in some way obvious, sexual references nor happy end This was such a sweet and funny classic from Ancient Greece Written in prose and exploring the problems of two lovers, who don t know how to make love With help and hindrance from the Gods of course , some neighbours, as well as the odd pirate adventure, things end happily ever after 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 Wikipedia see below for the links And this is exactly one of the kinds of books that make me glad

on Wikipedia 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 them immediately on my Kindle And as an American, how would we have had exposure to this, unless some Hollywood film company decides to make a new iteration of it Without that kind of leverage behind it, it s not something that would ever come again ever onto the Bestseller list even if it is better than the majority of those books there Listening to a great episode of RADIOLAB Words about how a language spontaneously grew among the deaf community in Nicaragua, and how the second generation had 10xsubtle words for the idea of to think , with the result that they scored many orders better on a test that examined their ability to have strong interpersonal empathy I.e., their ability to think from the point of view of another person was much stronger because their islands of information in their brain hadsubtle bridges that could befully utilized, and so they functioned at a higher level until the 2nd gen taught the 1st gen the new words, and the scores normalized To me, this says a lot about the influence and evolution of literature, even the use and function of it Further, larger vocabulary literally is empowering in a very concrete way, and that applies also to the way words are used and the kind of constantly evolving complexity in the spiritual field of the different worlds created by good literature You can becomehuman by reading books In the program, the man says the 27 years when he was deaf and languageless not even knowing until then that objects had names that people used were his dark years, and once he had the growing vocabulary, he was less and less able to remember what he felt then before his first teacher opened him up, and was never able to interact in the same way with his other languageless friends because he could no longer think in a way that was intelligible to his friends.So with this in mind, I open a Penguin Classic and I wonder, how far removed am I from the way this writer understands his world And its a tricky thing, especially in this instance Longus wrote the amazing Daphnis and Chloe 1800 years ago Which in Greek antiquity time, is the end of Greek antiquity time Its surprising that it doesn t feel dated It isn t overly elaborate, but neither is it extremely simplistic The writer really seems to have thought about the arc of the story, when to bring or when to pull the emotional punches Things are mentioned that have an impact dozens of pages later, there s a good economy of words, but the author also is able to elaborate when necessary rather than rushing the story I read it in about 3 hours, and didn t once have my attention wander I meant to read half last night and half today but I liked it enough that I kept going until 1230 AM It s worth your time It easily rivaled any other classical text that I ve come across I ve not really read a lot from this time, but have enjoyed nearly everything that I ve come across Other Antiquities classics that I love Xenophon s Persian Journey, the Satyricon, the Heroides by Ovid, and Edith Hamilton s Mythology Drama, I like The Seven Against Thebes, Aristophanes and Aeschylus People make a great to do about Euripides, but I read a thing about him that was pretty scathing and have stayed away from him Plus there are many good Shakespeare plays that incorporate these characters This is the intro text on GR from the Marc Chagal version In 1831 Goethe called Daphnis and Chloe a masterpiece in which Understanding, Art, and Taste appear at their highest point, and beside which the good Virgil retreats somewhat into the background One would do well to read it every year, to be instructed by it again and again, and to receive anew the impression of its great beauty Touching yet humorous, naive and at the same time highly sophisticated, Daphnis and Chloe is the story of a shepherd boy and girl who fall desperately in love yet find themselves facing great obstacles, because in their passion they behave, as the author says, evenawkwardly than rams and ewesThe mentioned segment from Radiolab s WORDShttp www.radiolab.org 2010 aug 09 nPenguin Classics Complete 20th Century Modern Classics what they call Novecento in Italian is the TIME 1923

particularly enjoyed the descriptions of nature and herding goats and sheep I really appreciated how gentle and lighthearted the story was The last 20 pages or so were a bit of a drag to me, but I am happy I finally got to this ancient classic If you re in the mood for something springy, I would definitely pick it up. Read all my reviews on I don t think pastoral romance is something for me I found this one from the ancient Greek author Longus, overly long and without substance of any kind A boy and a girl, both foundlings, are raised by poor shepherds goatherds and while there is pirates and other kind of problems, they only have eyes for each other and are painfully slow acting on it All the while they seem naive to a fault Not for me Little Black Classics 115Read all my reviews on I don t think pastoral romance is something for me I found this one from the ancient Greek author Longus, overly long and without substance of any kind A boy and a girl, both foundlings, are raised by poor shepherds goatherds and while there is pirates and other kind of problems, they only have eyes for each other and are painfully slow acting on it All the while they seem naive to a fault Not for me Little Black Classics 115 Daphnis and Chlo is one of the fundamental works of European civilization that has inspired scores of painters, sculptors, poets, choreographers and composers Five pages in, I realized it was also the model used by Honor d Urf and Jacques Henri Bernardin de Saint Pierre All in all Daphnis and Chlo was well worth the two hours that it took to read on my dock at the cottage I would give it onestar if I could see in any way its relevance to the twenty first century. Recommended if the sentence, I swear by the goats, said not an iota ironically, appeals to you.
