LYNE, R. O. A. M.,
Words and the Poet. Characteristic Techniques of Style in Vergil's Aeneid.
Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1989. 209p. Original blue cloth with dust wrps. Library mylar cover with library marks to tail spine. Stamps to upper and lower edge. Library marks on first endpages. 'Few, I imagine, would quarrel with the premiss of this book, that Virgil's philological poetry, in which the reader's sensibility is manipulated through the artful manipulation of words. (...) One could go on, alternately agreeing and disagreeing, but always stimulated to fresh thought about the poetry. Enough, however, has been said to show that this is a book which nobody who is seriously interested in Virgil can afford to neglect.' (E.J. KENNEY in The Journal of Roman Studies, 1990, p. 211).
