Barclay's pastorals contain many pictures of rustic life as he knew it.
The charm of his pastorals is the Italian sentiment which pervades them.
Szymonowicz (1554-1624) was a writer of good pastorals.
Another excellent writer of pastorals was Zimorowicz, a native of Lemberg, who died at the early age of twenty-five.
Another writer of pastorals, but not of equal merit, was Jan Gawinski, a native of Cracow.
