Excerpt from The Poetical Works of Alexander Pope, Vol. 1: With Memoir, Critical Dissertation, and Explanatory Notes
It is by rules like these that we ought to judge of pastoral. And since the instructions given for any art are to be de livered as that art is in perfection, they must of necessity be derived from those in whom it is acknowledged so to be. It is therefore from the practice of Theocritus and Virgil (the only undisputed authors of pastoral) that the critics have drawn the foregoing notions concerning it.
