The pastoral can be dismissed as a rather trivial genre: nymphs, shepherds, nothing serious. It is, in fact, a tradition as old as poetry itself, still alive, touching on vital and often conflicting areas of experience - love and war, city and country, paradises lost and regained, gardens and wilderness. Enjoy a wide range of poetry across ages. Texts provided for a wonderful, illuminating journey for all lovers of poetry.
