Original title

Églogas

Garcilaso de la Vega, greatest exponent of the Spanish Golden Age, recovered the classic genre of eclogues.

Poetry by Garcilaso de la Vega, poet and soldier in the Spanish Golden Age, published for the first time in "Las obras de Boscán y algunas de Garcilasso de la Vega", around 1542. There are three eclogues by the author, recovering this classical genre, in which the evocation of nature has a main role.
The first poem by Garcilaso is dedicated to the viceroy of Naples, don Pedro de Toledo, and describes the song of two country people from dawn to dusk. The second eclogue is the longest and most complex of the three. It is made up of a bucolic scene and an apology in the house of Alba. The third and last eclogue uses the "locus amoenus" theme and idealises the beauty of a landscape with the Tajo River.
