Anderson’s Miscellany

While Octavian is called a novel, it is in the strictest sense of the word, a miscellany, one of the defining literary forms of the age in which it is set. Miscellany is the Renaissance and Eighteenth-Century’s period-specific version of pastiche.

Superb discussion of the first volume of M. T. Anderson’s Octavian Nothing at The Millions.  Highly recommended.
