I've heard lots of people say Don uixote is the first It was written in the early seventeenth century The most commonly cited first novel is The Tale of Genji dated to the late tenth early eleventh century If you google the words oldest novel Genji is the top resultI don't understand how this and other ancient Greek novels were overlooked though Heliodorus's work alternatively known as Aithiopika An Ethiopian Story etc is a 250 page novel about two lovers cast about the Egyptian Persian and Ethiopian countrysides continuously falling in and out of captivity always

    PDF Heliodorus of Emesa å PDF Αιθιοπικά PDF/EPUB · å 12th century.co Αιθιοπικά kindle, Αιθιοπικά eBookAethiopica 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 misfortune into the next and of course all is resolved at the very last minute It’s very dramatic fast paced and surprisingly easy to read for such an old textI thought it was entertaining enough but not something I really felt that I was missing out on by not having read it previously I do always find it amusing in these older romances how just the mere sight of someone from across the room is enough to make characters want to marry each other It seemed like these two lovers were cursed by being so beautiful that they couldn’t walk down the street without someone wanting to kidnap th
