Longus' romance tells the story of two teenagers, who love each other but do not know how to make love. Divine presences mingle with peasant life in this colourful story of the mystery of love and sexual initiation. Ronald McCail's new translation is immensely readable and does full justice to one of the most popular of classical romances, a precursor to the modern novel.
