dc.description.abstractThis thesis seeks to demonstrate a relationship between the Homeric warrior-duels and the works of Theocritus and Vergil. Theocritus, the so-called father of pastoral poetry, transferred duels into a pastoral setting to create his herder figures who strive against each other with songs rather than spears. Vergil then proceeds to make use of Theocritus’ work and expands the existing boundaries of pastoral.
