Not all Italian pastoral is so artificial, and some script low-born clowns alongside idealized shepherds, but Tasso and Guarini, as noted above, were the familiar models. Shakespeare and English Stage Comedy 14 15 16 17 18 21 Lyly is not the only source, of course, nor is drama alone in producing this kind of speech. Agnes Latham demonstrates the parallel with Bartholomew Young’s translation of Montemayor’s Diana, completed in 1583 and published in 1598: “And it was the strangest thing in the world to heare how Alanius sighing saide, Ah my Ismenia; and how Ismenia saide, Ah my Montanus; and how Montanus saide, Ah my Selvagia; and how Selvagia saide, Ah my Alanius” (Latham 1975: viii).

Italian pastoral was already fashionable in England. The two best-known Italian pastoral plays were Tasso’s Aminta and Guarini’s Il Pastor Fido, probably written in 1572–3 and 1580–5 respectively, and published together in England in one volume by John Wolfe, working with Giacopo Castelvetro (nephew of the famous critic), in 1591. Il Pastor Fido had been published in Italy only a year before, but already, according to Castelvetro’s dedication, there was a real demand for an English edition (Henke 1997: 46–7).
