We develop a (classical) local field theory which contains as a special solution the (classical) dual string recently discussed by Goddard, Goldstone, Rebbi and Thorn. The basic field is a gauge field F??(x), and the Lagrangian is given by ( ?1 2?')?F2. We treat the case of closed strings (corresponding to the Shapiro-Virasoro model) where F?? can be expressed in terms of potentials A?. Quantization of F?? is briefly discussed, but a more thorough discussion is postponed.
