Greek Fiction: Daphnis and Chloe by Longus, Callirhoe by Chariton, and Chion of Heraclea by Anon
Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd
In this collection of Greek fiction written between the first and fourth centuries AD, “Callirhoe” is the stirring tale of star-crossed lovers Chaereas and Callirhoe, torn apart when she is kidnapped and sold as a slave, while “Daphnis and Chloe” tells of a boy and girl abandoned at birth, who grow up to fall in love and battle pirates. “Greek Fiction” - also containing “Letters of Chion”, an early thriller about tyranny and a political assassination - is a fascinating glimpse into an alternative view of Ancient Greece's literary culture.
