Product Description


A collection of epigrams, a small selection from a large collection. Peter Dale has concentrated on more lyrical verse and sequences, though his translations, perhaps, have hinted at the more humorous and satirical line which appears here.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The epigram is not just about brevity. It is about polish - and bite.

'The epigrams here are a small selection from a large, unpublished collection.' Oh dear.

(Wislawa Szymborska, when asked why she hadn't published more, replied 'I have a waste paper basket'.)
