This book examines the theme of death in the major European pastoral novels of Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and England. Through careful textual analysis, the authors show that the themes of love and death are inseparable in European literature, and that violence and death are intrinsic to the psychological landscape of pastoral.

Damiani and Mujica bring a rich knowledge of classical and Renaissance European literature to this study....this collection offers much to the student.>>>>
...Et in Arcadia Ego traces the development of increasingly complex treatments of death through a century of Spanish, Portuguese, English, and French pastoral romances, and at the same time offers some interesting psychological and aesthetic explanations of the linkage between love and death.>>> (Michael McGaha)
...careful scrutiny of each of the novels discussed has yielded considerable information about the different forms in which death is represented in pastoral fiction.>>>>
