Vergil's Eclogues; landscapes of experience
This interpretive reading treats the Eclogues in the light of some of the problems raised by contemporary pastoral criticism. Professor Leach believes that the pastoral poet's attitudes toward man's role in the physical world and in history are revealed by the ways in which he organizes images of nature.
