"The Eclogues? No, dammit, that was Virgil."
 The Eclogues were Virgil's first major work. Also known as the Bucolics, they are written in a pre-existing rustic genre of poetry which was Greek in origin. The Eclogues involve scenes of country herdsmen discussing the revolutionary change that was occurring in Rome at the time of their composition (around 44 and 38 B.C.) or recounting love stories.
