Description: Paul Alpers argues that the pastoral in literary history is often mischaracterized as a catchall for literature about rural themes and nature in general. Examining works from a wide range of authors including Shakespeare, Virgil, Cervantes, and Frost, Alpers brings the story of the pastoral into the twentieth century. The pastoral reemerges in this account not as a vehicle of nostalgia for some Golden Age, nor of escape to idyllic landscapes, but as a means of dealing with the loss, decline, and deprivation that motivate pastoral.
