Write The First Customer Review

Theocritus (third century BCE) was the founder of bucolic poetry. The extant poems of Moschus (second century BCE) and Bion (probably second and first centuries BCE) are not really bucolic, but Bion s "Lament for Adonis" is floridly brilliant. Pattern poems are found in the "Greek Anthology," a work of many centuries.
