International Eclogues Study
12 July 2008
If you'd like to be notified about our next study (tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2001), simply subscribe to the eclogues group at Yahoo! Groups. If you're not already an Yahoo! Groups member, you'll need to register. Look for the "Click here to register for FREE link" on the right side of the page and click on it. You'll be asked for your email address, your gender, a date of birth, and your zip/postal code. You will also be asked to choose a password. You will NOT be asked for personal information like your name, phone number, or street address, and Yahoo! Groups promises not to give away or sell your information without your consent.
Wendell Clausen, ed., Eclogues (Oxford: Clarendon, 1995).Now available: a list of characters for the sequence of ten poems.
If you don't have a text of the Eclogues you can download one for free from the Eclogues group file section in one of three formats (ASCII text, Microsoft Word, PDF). If you prefer a book to a printout, there are also two or three paperback editions with the Latin text and an English translation on facing pages. If your library doesn't have them (or if you like to mark up the text you're reading), you can buy them online
David Ferry's translation (with Latin on facing pages). Smooth, sometimes sacrifices proper nouns in order to convey their implications.
