Description
Publius Vergilius Maro (70–19 BC), known in English as Virgil, was perhaps the single greatest poet of the Roman empire—a friend to the emperor Augustus and the beneficiary of wealthy and powerful patrons. Most famous for his epic of the founding of Rome, the Aeneid, Virgil began his poetic career with these Eclogues—highly polished variations on the idea of the pastoral poem, mixing political, social, and moral commentary—that exerted a profound influence on subsequent Western poetry. They appear here with the original texts and the translations en face. In the introduction, Gregson Davis places these poems in the context of their time, and explains Virgil's stylistic innovations.
