The Eclogues or also called the Bucolics, is the first of the three major works of the Latin poet Virgil. He took his generic model the Greek bucolic poetry of Theocritus and created a Roman version partly by offering a dramatic and mythic interpretation of revolutionary change at Rome in the turbulent period between roughly 44 and 38 BC.
