Disambig[edit]

There is also an experimental programming language called Epigram. There should probably be a disambiguation page sitting at the unqualified word. Can somebody do that and/or point me at a resource on how to do it myself? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Nentuaby (talkcontribs) 2006-05-19T22:08:09

Epigram Examples[edit]

Good nature and good sense must ever join; to err is human, to forgive devine. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.221.118.140 (talkcontribs) 2006-05-31T20:48:54

Catullus - Bad Translation[edit]

The translation of Catullus's poem 85 in this article is horrible. There is no implication of 'her' in the epigram it literally says 'I hate and I love' any interpretation presuming this poem is simply about Lesbia or some other girl and could not be read in any other sense would be making a gross presumption. Anyway point being, it is a bad translation of the text, it is even contradicted by the Wikipedia article on the same poem (which, by the way, this article should link to).

English[edit]

The section on poems using the epigrammatic form had poor English and structure, I've tidied it. However I'm still not sure of the sense or relevance of it - needs a better explanation of how the form has been used and adapted in English. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gymnophoria (talkcontribs) 09:29, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
