The love of Daphnis und Chloe, a prototype of the romance with the feeling of love existing before it is fully discovered - a discovery in which others are often in the better position whilst the lover is fooled by his or her real motivations. Introduced here as classic rivalling Heliodor's Ęthiopica.
