This is the world of a philosophy graduate who finds inspiration and strength in art and poetry. Who likes to design and bring new digital things to life. Who invents memories and tries to overcome his limitations (as far as he’s aware of them) through storytelling. Who wants to hang around with kids and talk to them about the world.

MEANING: noun: A literary work, especially a poem, composed of parts taken from works of other authors.
ETYMOLOGY: From Latin cento (patchwork). Earliest documented use: 1605
NOTES: Nobel-prize-winning poet T.S. Eliot’s observation is relevant to centos: “Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different from that from which it was torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion.”
Examples of centos:
USAGE: “Louis Zukofsky continued to write … a play, a novella, a book of criticism, a 500-page cento of philosophy in homage to Shakespeare …” Bob Perelman; Finding His Voice; Tikkun (Berkeley, California); May/Jun 2007.
