The Shepheardes Calender is Edmund Spenser's first major poetic work written around 1579, which presents  12 eclogues inspired by Virgil's Bucolics . The theme of each varies depending on the month. Cy  Twombly replaced each eclogue of the poet with one of his drawings conceived as an echo of  pastoral poems. This book highlights the importance that Cy Twombly gave to the cycles and series in which  he reinvents, in his own way, the great history painting.
