Daphnis & Chloe by Longus( Book )
78 editions published between 1916 and 2005 in 5 languages and held by 1,486 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

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
