    Thus let me live, unseen, unknown;
    Thus unlamented let me dye;
    Steal from the world, and not a stone
    Tell where I lye........// beautiful solitude feelings// greatly written

    The Pastoral genre dates back to the Greeks, and no doubt beyond.

    Ideals as innocent as these expressed by Alexander Pope''s 'Ode On Solitude' are made complex for me by their antithesis, as expressed in the greater body of his worldly satire. I love the poem, just as I love watching 'Escape to the Country' from the comforts of my city home: long may the Pastoral genre continue to be.

    Such ideals, so fluently expressed by Alexander Pope, are so much the antithesis of his worldly satire as to appear hollow. I love this poem, just as I adore watching 'Escape to the Country' from the comfort of my city home.
    Long live the pastoral genre.
