  • A pastoral lifestyle is that of shepherds herding livestock around open areas of land according to seasons and the changing availability of water and pasturage. It lends its name to a genre of literature, art and music that depicts such life in an idealized manner, typically for urban audiences. A pastoral is a work of this genre. An alternative word for pastoral as a genre, both in adjectival and noun form, is bucolic, from the Greek βουκολικόν, from βουκόλος, meaning a cowherd.
