Eclogues: Eight Stories

'“A tour de force that adds something new to the art of fiction.” —The New York Times   “Guy Davenport mixes historical fact, a philosophical imagination, and an almost hallucinatory prose style to create short stories that are at once marvelous, frustrating, and original. . . . His accomplishment is to take the many classical referents in which he delights and inform them with a three dimensionality that is alive with all the convolutions and perturbations of an exciting modern mind.” —The Virginia Quarterly Review    “[When] his work is compared with that of Calvino and Faulkner it does not pale.” —Chicago Review'
