Read e-book online Eclogues: Eight Stories PDF

By Guy Davenport

A specific number of tales alive with highbrow and inventive energy

encouraged via resources as various as Virgil, Dumas, and the day-by-day newspaper, the eight tales in man Davenport’s Eclogues reflect the wide-ranging passions and curiosities of 1 of America’s most unique and agile writers. Taking the shape of diary entries and pastoral poetry, and with allusions to Italo Calvino and the Greek gods, those tales are best examples of Davenport’s ingenuity and mastery of technique.
Eclogues includes philosophical explorations and portrayals of deeply human feelings with tales equivalent to “The bushes of Lystra,” Davenport’s meditation at the intersection of early Christian doctrine and Greek delusion, and “On a few traces of Virgil,” during which a gaggle of children experiments with sexuality in the course of a lazy summer time in Bordeaux. The author’s playfulness and defiance of expectancies make for a desirable and fantastic read.
