This chapter offers a summary of the salient conclusions of the preceding chapters, with special attention to metre as an arena for Roman negotiation of their relationship to Greece, and the peculiar physicality of the Roman conception of metre, related (it is suggested) to its status as an import and as the object of academic study. The hope is expressed that the book, at the very least, will make dismissal of the metrical dimension of a poetic artefact no longer tenable.
