We derive a Hamiltonian which describes the first-order perturbations of orbital eccentricity and apse precession rate of a narrow ring due to a close satellite whose orbit is also eccentric. Our treatment covers cases in which the satellite crosses the ring. The level curves of the Hamiltonian are displayed for several values of the parameters. We apply our results to the interaction of Saturn's F ring with its inner shepherd satellite.
