Thank you for recognizing Virgil today, the Eclogues and this second of one of my favorite group of poems. It's often overlooked how influential these poems are, establishing an entire genre -- the pastoral tradition -- that includes Spenser, Sidney, Pope, etc. in English, but my true favorite poem by Virgil is (are) the Georgics.
