Anotace

This is currently the only edition of the complete Idylls in print. Theocritus is a key figure in the development of Western literature; he invented pastoral poetry and was the principal model for Virgil in his Eclogues, hence he is a component of classical and English literature courses. Accessible introduction by Richard Hunter describes what is known of Theocritus, the poetic tradition and Theocritus' innovations and what is meant by 'bucolic' poetry. Accurate and fluent translation based on the OCT Greek text. The Notes summarize and contextualize each Idyll, as well as glossing individual words and phrases. 'Eucritus and I and pretty Amyntas turned aside To the farm of Phrasidamus, where we sank down With pleasure on deep-piled couches of sweet rushes, And vine leaves freshly stripped from the bush.' The Greek poet Theocritus of Syracuse (first half of the third century BC) was the inventor of 'bucolic' poetry. These vignettes of country life, centred on competitions in song and love, are the foundational poems of the western pastoral tradition. They were the principal model for Virgil in the Eclogues and their influence can be seen in the work of Petrarch and Milton. Although it is the pastoral poems for which he is chiefly famous, Theocritus also wrote hymns to the gods, brilliant mime depictions of everyday life, short narrative epics, epigrams, and encomia of the powerful. The great variety of his poems illustrates the rich and flourishing poetic culture of what was a golden age for Greek poetry. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
