Plot summary | Daphnis and Chloe Wikipedia | GradeSaver

It is set on the Greek isle of Lesbos , where scholars assume the author to have lived. Its style is rhetorical and pastoral ; its shepherds and shepherdesses are wholly conventional, but the author imparts human interest to this idealized world. Daphnis and Chloe resembles a modern novel more than does its chief rival among Greek erotic romances, the Aethiopica of Heliodorus , which is remarkable more for its plot than for its characterization. Daphnis and Chloe is the story of a boy Daphnis and a girl Chloe , each of whom is exposed at birth along with some identifying tokens. A goatherd named Lamon discovers Daphnis, and a shepherd called Dryas finds Chloe. Each decides to raise the child he finds as his own.

  1. Hunting on Lesbos, I saw in a beautiful grove a painting representing the incidents of a love-story, "the fortunes of Love": women in labour, nurses swathing new-born babes; infants exposed; animals suckling them; shepherds carrying them away; young people embracing; an attack by pirates; an inroad by a hostile force.

  2. Daphnis and Chloe is the story of a boy Daphnis and a girl Chloe , each of whom is exposed at birth along with some identifying tokens.

  3. A Summary of the First Book[edit]. THE Sophist sees a picture of curious Interpretation in the Island Lesbos. And he describes it in four Books.
