T1 Virgil recomposed : the mythological and secular centos in antiquity A1 McGill, Scott,, PB Oxford University Press PP Oxford; New York YR 2005 SN 9780195175646 0195175646 AB "The Virgilian centos anticipate the avant-garde and undermine the image of a staid, sober, and centered classical world. This book examines the twelve mythological and secular Virgilian centos that survive from antiquity. The centos, in which authors take nonconsecutive lines or segments of lines from the Eclogues, Georgics, and Aeneid and reconnect them to produce new poems, have received limited attention. No other book-length study exists of all the centos, which date from ca. 200 to ca. 530."--BOOK JACKET.
