Virgil’s Eclogues and Georgics in Charlotte Smith’s Beachy Head

Virgil’s Eclogues and Georgics in Charlotte Smith’s Beachy Head

(p.161) 8 Virgil’s Eclogues and Georgics in Charlotte Smith’s Beachy Head
Romans and Romantics

Juan Christian Pellicer

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the formal coherence of Charlotte Smith's Beachy Head (1807) in the light of its generic mixture in drawing on a repertoire of eighteenth-century poetic forms that ultimately derive from the Virgilian pastoral and georgic traditions. It asks whether this Romantic engagement with the eighteenth-century repertoire also casts light on Smith's Roman forebear, Virgil, and specifically on the relationship between Virgil's Eclogues and his agricultural poem, the Georgics.

Keywords:   Beachy Head, eighteenth-century poetry, georgic, mixed genre, pastoral, Charlotte Smith, Virgil
