Leucippe and Clitophon, written in the 2nd century A.D., is exceptional among the ancient romances in being a first-person narrative: the adventures of the young couple are recounted by the hero himself. The colorful story Clitophon tells us includes shipwrecks, apparent deaths, attacks by pirates and brigands, abductions, and other frights and obstacles. Love triumphs in the end. Achilles Tatius' style is notable for descriptive detail and for his engaging digressions.
