Virgil’s Ecl. 3, often viewed (due to the author’s young age) as an imperfect poem, shows, through a careful analysis, many interesting features. In particular, the author charaterises the two protagonists in order to establish a comparison with Theocritus, and to highlight the original traits of his own poetry, putting in evidence his debt toward the neoteric tradition and the rising Latin love elegy of Cornelius Gallus.
