Theocritus Bion and Moschus Rendered into English Prose

Publisher Description

At the beginning of the third century before Christ, in the years just preceding those in which Theocritus wrote, the genius of Greece seemed to have lost her productive force.   Nor would it have been strange if that force had really been exhausted.   Greek poetry had hitherto enjoyed a peculiarly free development, each form of art succeeding each without break or pause, because each—epic, lyric, dithyramb, the drama—had responded to some new need of the state and of religion.
