Abstract:Vergil has "analyzed" the corpus of Theocritus by using only the bucolic Idylls and reworking them; there is not a one to one correspondence between individual Idylls and Eclogues. In the Aeneid, Vergil takes a single author as a primary model and analyzes his works, using them to create something greater than the model. In the Eclogues as well he has taken the work of a single author, found the elements which tie his view of these several poems together, and used that to recreate the model in a Roman way.
