by TheocritusThe recent surge of interest in ancient pastoral poetry has prompted this first modern English translation of the Idylls of Theocritus, founder of the pastoral genre. Rist's translation captures fully the dignity of Theocritus' hexameters, and her individual prefaces to the Idylls contribute to modern interpretation and are perceptive regarding character analysis, comparisons with other poets, and the intermingling of genres.
