THE ECLOGUES OF VIRGIL: Alexis

Language:
English
Genres:
Historical, Poetry

Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC – 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets and well known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. The Eclogues ('Selections'), also know as the Bucolics, were Virgils' first major work. Virgil 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. The second part of “The Eclogues” by Virgil is referred to the Corydon who was a shepherd in ancient Greece and pastoral poem and fables. In this parable the author tells about the Corydon's fair of Alexis where he founds no hope and addresses to God with deep feelings of sorrow.
