Wilfred P. Mustard, a professor of Classics at Johns Hopkins University and later Haverford College, was ahead of his time in many respects inasmuch as he extended the realm of Classics to include the Classical tradition in later authors and cultures. This essay mirrors the theme of his book on Classical echoes in Tennyson by exploring the legacy of Vergil's Georgics in English authors including Chaucer, Gawin Douglas, Shakespeare, Johnson, Chapman, Fletcher, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Swift, and Coleridge. The breadth of his work is truly impressive and the essay as a whole is an excellent example of the insights that knowledge of the Classics can bring to the study of more modern literature.
