Titel: CIRIS. A Poem attributed to Vergil. Edited ...
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge (.), 1978. XII,332p. Cloth. Small personal library mark and name on free endpaper. Nice copy. The Ciris is a mythological narrative poem on the legend of Scylla and Nisus, and it is an outstanding example of the epyllion genre - miniature epics, of which there must have been many from Catullus onwards. Late sources in Antiquity and inferior manuscript tradition attributed this poem to Vergil, and the possibility of Vergilian authorship has been discussed since the Renaissance. The editor, Lyne, has reassessed the manuscript authorities for the Ciris and here presents a new and better text of the poem with apparatus criticus. In his introduction and commentary he provides a complete account of the Ciris: its manuscripts, its style and language, the poet's treatment of the Scylla myths, his narrative technique and his method of composition. Dr Lyne's tracking down of the poet's borrowings from the now lost neoteric poets of Catullus' Generation is especially interesting. (Publisher's information). From the library of the late Sir Kenneth James Dover. Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 22311
