    This edition of a popular Greek text is designed for intermediate college classroom use. Students enjoy Longus' Daphnis and Chloe, a tale about young love and country life, without needing much background knowledge.

The running glossary and explanations of the grammar and syntax serve to move the reading along, allowing the instructor to decide when review is necessary.
