'This study contributes to a dialogue about the scope and meaning of pastoral, arguing for a more socially and aesthetically complex awareness of its significance. The study is text-based rather than thesis-driven, dealing mainly with Renaissance works by Spenser, Milton, and Shakespeare, but grounds itself in Virgil and concludes with pastoral's transmuted afterlife in Wordsworth and Samuel Beckett'--Provided by publisher.

This book, by a leading Shakespeare scholar, is the first comprehensive account of the relationship between Shakespeare and his favorite poet, Ovid. Bate examines the full range of Shakespeare's works, identifying Ovid's presence not only in the narrative poems and pastoral comedies, but also in the Sonnets and mature tragedies. Demonstrating how profoundly creative Ovid's influence was, especially in his representations of myth, metamorphosis, and sexuality, this original and elegantly written study reveals Shakespeare as an extraordinarily sophisticated reader of Ovidian myth and as a metamorphic artist as fluid and nimble as his classical original.
