Summary note:
This book, a comprehensive survey of T. Calpurnius Siculus' pastoral opus, focuses on the poet's seven eclogues, which are read primarily through the lens of generic evolution and interaction, in an attempt to establish his poetics and his epigonal generic profile. It also contextualizes the generic changes presented by his work into the socio-historical background within which he is operating, namely the political context of Neronian Rome.
