about

English poetry is supposed to be short in epigrams. But here there is a choice of more than seven hundred epigrams and epitaphs (which are epigrams of a special kind) from the sixteenth century to our time-familiar, unfamiliar and even unknown. This ancient art of witty and satirical and also tender compression has found its English masters in Pope, Blake, Burns and in twentieth-century masters Belloc and Robert Graves.
