Follows the fortunes of Virgil's Eclogues from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century. It argues that Virgilian pastoral spoke to the intellectuals of each place and time of their own condition and allowed them to formulate, through theirr transmission and appropriation of the text, their own ideological stance. Among the writers included are Petrarch, Landino, Vives, Marot, Spenser, Milton, Fontenelle, Pope, Voltaire, Chenier, David, Wordsworth, Gide, Valery, and Frost; among the artists, Simone Martini, Sebastian Brant, Franz Cleyn, David, Blake, Palmer, Maillol, and Villon. Includes an Index and Illustrations. "In addition to provocative and detailed readings of a wide range of texts, Professor Patterson generates a cumulative 'meta-pastoral' commentary that will find an important place in the contemporary critique of the discourses of humanis." - Thomas A. Vogler, University of California, Santa Cruz
