    How old is the novel? Can you identify the first novel? I've heard lots of people say Don Quixote is the first. It was written in the early seventeenth century.

    Heliodorus's Ethiopian Story was engaging, complex, and inventive. It was also a kind of mixed bag for me.

    "and lives there the man of so iron and adamantine an heart, as not to be enchanted with listening to the love of Theagenes and Chariclea, though the story were to last a year?"

    Aithiopika/Aethiopica was written around 300 A.D., and is by far the oldest book I have read. The closest I have come to these stories is a short unit on the myths that I learned from my seventh grade teacher than 40 years ago, and a couple of modern myth retellings. So, I had no idea what to expect. And while I see the importance of these

    Aethiopica is an early Greek Romance. It tells the tale of two lovers: Chariclea, daughter of Ethiopian Royalty and Theagenes. The plot begins at what seems to be halfway through the progression of events, and much of the story is told as tales by other characters (stories within the stories). The poor lovers always seem to fall from one misf

    I can see why this is considered a classic and why it is on the list of 1001 books you can see the influence it has had on later writers including Shakespeare however I found it to be quite repetitive and long winded.
