This chapter uncovers an intricate, comprehensive, symmetrical system according to which the Consolation’s poetic metres are repeated and arranged. This acoustic system includes all of the work’s thirty-nine poems, while the final poem, which contains a metric element of every other poem, functions as an anthology of the whole.
