This article deals with the programmatic Idylls 1 and 7, with ample discussion of the scholarly debate surrounding these poems. Attention is paid to their place in the Theocritean corpus and to the various programmatic elements these poems possess, such as the amoebaean contest between two speakers and the interaction between (sounds of) nature and mankind. In the discussion of Idyll 1, the focus is on the description and iconography of the goatherd’s cup, and on the content and form of the song about the woes of Daphnis. In the discussion of Idyll 7, the distinctive narrative form (first-person narrative about the past) and the identification of Simichidas and Lycidas form the center of attention.
