Excerpt from A Fardel of Epigrams: Done Into English
The contents of this little volume consist of examples drawn to some extent from familiar classical Greek and Latin sources, but for the most part from the undeservedly neglected neolatin and French enrammatists of the late... fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. One eleventh-century writer has been included who may serve as a link. In the case of those enrams which originally applied to individuals, now obscure or forgotten, I have not hesitated to substitute modern or suggestive names, where it seemed convenient, in order that the application might be to permanent types, thus employing, in a way, the method known in the seventeenth century as allusive. The mingling of sentiment and satire here is intentional, as being illustrative of the chance-medley of daily experience.
