Synopsis

'This only they knew, that the kiss had destroyed him and the bath had destroyed her.' In this beautiful Ancient Greek tale, Daphnis and Chloe are the inexperienced goatherd and shepherd who must face pirates, rivals and the confusion of their own feelings to find true love. One of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries - including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.

Customer Reviews

Not really my type of book. It was bought for my wife, but I thought I would give it a go. I only managed about 25 pages and decided it would work better for my wife.
