  Eclogue - LoveToKnow 1911
An eclogue, perhaps, in its primary signification was a selected piece.
The idea of dialogue, however, is not necessary for an eclogue, which is often not to be distinguished from the idyll.
Latin eclogues were also written by Calpurnius Siculus and by Nemesianus.

The eclogue as a pastoral form first appeared in the idyll s of Theocritus, was adopted by Virgil, and was revived in the Renaissance by Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio.
The terms eclogue, bucolic, and idyll have been widely used as synonyms, except that grammarians have made an effort to confine ‘eclogue’ to poems in dialogue form.

 LiteratureClassics.com -- Essay -- Virgil and the Messianic Eclogue
This is Latin for the “soul of the natural Christian” and it came as the result of the interpretation of some of his poetry, especially the fourth Eclogue.
The Eclogues are a series of ten poems that Virgil wrote circa 40 BC.
Recent scholarship on the question of the fourth Eclogue has not generally taken the interpretation favored by Saint Augustine, Dante, Dryden or the author of this essay.

I wish here to examine Calpurnius's first eclogue in light of its relation to Vergil's work in general and to the role of Vergil's first eclogue in particular in establishing the framing conditions of the pastoral world.
Calpurnius's first eclogue, with its proclamation of a new golden age, has most often been read in light of Vergil's fourth, messianic eclogue, whose influence is undeniable.
She differentiates between the gens aurea prophesied in Vergil's fourth eclogue and the aurea saecula of Aen.

The disruption of chronology that incorporation allows for in Eclogue 5 might suggest that in his relationship to Theocritus Virgil is not "belated" by a strict literary-historical chronology.
Within the intertextual fabric of Eclogue 5 the incorporation of Mopsus and MenalcasÌ two Daphnis songs from contexts outside of the dramatic encounter, and particularly the presence of MopsusÌ song as an inscribed text within the fictional world, suggests that in a sense every allusion is an act of incorporation by writing.
Eclogue 5 reminds readers that even if the fiction of song exchanges in the pastoral world depends upon spoken communication, the intertextual density of pastoral poetry is impossible without writing.

The Eclogues, although written in overt imitation of the Hellenistic poet Theocritus, introduce contemporary issues and characters, gesture to the city of Rome (an intrusion that is, theoretically, odd in pastoral poetry), and at points seem saturated with images of sacrifice, loss, and exile.
Eclogue 10 (PP Ecl.10) is in praise of Virgil's near-contemporary, the poet Gallus.
Eclogue II is a lament for Argus by the shepherds Pythias and Silvius in which Petrarch allegorically explores and recounts his own sense of personal loss at the death of his close friend, Robert of Naples.

Nemesianus (late third century A.D.) followed in Virgil's footsteps with a tender eclogue that registers the equivalency of hetero- and homoerotic desire through a series of alternating speeches by Mopsus, whom the maiden Meroe shuns, and by Lycidas, whose love the young man Iollas spurns.
From 1318 to 1321, Dante (1265-1321) and a young scholar at Bologna, Giovanni del Virgilio, exchanged a brief series of Latin epistles in the form of pastoral eclogues that were instrumental in establishing the importance of pastoral for later European authors.

His fourth Eclogue, the Messianic Eclogue, is the clearest example of the shift from a timeless to a more historical view of a perfect world.

 Book Review
Per the standard definition of “eclogue” as a short and conventional poem, Ed Roberson’s City Eclogue is neither.
But if you look at the true etymology of eclogue, you find it is derived from eklegein, which means “to choose.” That’s interesting, but let’s continue onto the so-called “false” etymology, which says eclogue is derived from aix, goat, and logos, speech, meaning “the tales of goatherders,” or, in other words, pastorals.
Now that we are nature, a fact that still seems to elude the monument-makers in power, we need to investigate how far our shadow of flesh will be cast.

 Eclogue
An eclogue is a poem in a classical style on a pastoral subject.

Amaryllis is most notable in this Eclogue because of her connection with absence; when she is mentioned again later in the Eclogue at line 36, it is in the context of Tityrus' absence while on his journey to Rome.
At the beginning of Eclogue 1, Meliboeus contrasts his situation with that of Tityrus, noting that, while he is in exile (nos patriae fines linguimus, 1.3), Tityrus sits alone in the shade, "meditating on a woodland Muse" (silverstem Musam meditaris, 1.2), teaching the woods to sing his song about Amaryllis.
As an absent present in the first Eclogue, Amaryllis is able to evoke intense repsonses from men bound up in political necessities, as Tityrus first contemplates his god-given otium, and Meliboeus next contrasts his current exile in the beginning of the poem with memories of his former life here in the middle.

 Spenser's Shepheardes Calender   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
("Pastor" is Latin for "shepherd.") Virgil later imitated Theocritus in his Latin Eclogues and established the enduring model for the traditional pastoral: an elaborately conventional poem expressing the urban poet's nostalgic image of the peace and simplicity of the life of shepherds and other rural folk in an idealized natural setting.
The work as a whole is a set of eclogues organized -- somewhat like a Farmer's Almanac -- by months of the year, with the topic of each eclogue chosen to suit the season to which it is assigned.

 B 6 & the Poetics of Middle Style
Now if Virgil in the 1st eclogue does so stake out a position and define a program, it must be compared with the program of the 6th eclogue in order to determine what kind of system, if any, can be discerned in these poems and their themes.
The comparison uncovers a number of signs of a system, not least that the narrator of the 6th eclogue is called 'Tityrus', which was the name of secured old herdsman in the 1st eclogue.
In terms of literary history, Virgil appears to have subdivided the Alexandrian slight style, which was Hesiodic as opposed to Homeric, into low and middle styles that are newly typed as Theocritean and Hesiodic-Callimachean, thus foreshadowing the tripartite development of Virgil' s own life work.
