The Design of Virgil s BucolicsMoreIn 1986, reviewing recent work on the Bucolics, William S. Anderson wrote, Van Sickle s Design, has produced the most persuasive portrait of the Eclogues, arguing cogently for what he calls an ideological order.

The Design of Virgil s Bucolics argues that Virgil composed his ten eclogues as parts of a system: the Book of Bucolics conceived as aconcerted whole. The report of frequent theatre presentations showed that Virgil caught attention with dramatic flair, masking an ideological program that grew to encompass motifs of a returning Golden Age and new myth, providing cover for the Caesarist regime, casting the poet as a prophet, and laying groundwork for the Georgics and Aeneid. An extensive new Introduction to this second edition reviews developments and shortfalls in recent work on the Bucolics.
