"The Eclogues of Virgil gave definitive form to the pastoral mode, and these magically beautiful poems, so influential in so much subsequent literature, perhaps best exemplify what pastoral can do. These songs made a world; it is a world all the more beautiful for being vulnerable to the intrusions of power and of natural calamity and loss. A bilingual edition, The Eclogues of Virgil: a translation includes concise, informative notes and an introduction that describes the fundamental role of this deeply original book in the great pastoral tradition."-- Provided by publisher.
