Epigram

| | Comments (0)

"An epigram (from the Greek word for 'inscription') has come to mean a witty saying in either verse or prose, concisely phrased and often satiric...originated in ancient Greece, where it was a brief verse intended for inscription on a monument" (Hamilton 19).

Hamilton also gives an example of an epigram:

"Words are like leaves; and where they most abound,

Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found" (Hamilton 19).

So its a small little saying, poem like thing. Cute.

Bye.
