Kindle (US version), Kindle eBook, ePub (US version), ePub eBook

The inventor of the bucolic genre, Theocritus of Syracuse was a learned poet, who refashioned traditional literary forms in original and highly polished verse on a small scale. Theocritus is best known for poems set in pastoral landscapes, consisting of dialogues and song-contests, combining lyric tone with epic meter. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Theocritus’ complete extant works, with relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
