For Colonel Calverley is named after Charles Stuart Calverley, an idyllist and a parodist.
[T]he idyllist does not treat [his subjects] lyrically, following rather the rules of epic and dramatic composition" ("The Idyllists," Studies of the Greek Poets, 3rd ed.[London, 1893], 2:244-245).
(45) Also relevant to his career as an idyllist were his Verses and Translations (1862) and Translations into English and Latin (1866).
Also included are paintings by Victorian artists, such as Helen Allingham and Kate Greenaway, and those who have been termed the Idyllist
school, including George Pinwell and Frederick Walker.
"Nels nips `arid, avid' lager-tub tilers, Enos," asserts idyllist
sap Nan, past silly distress, "as one's `relit-but-regal diva' Dira, `spins' Len!"
