Summary

I chose to investigate the subject to which I have given the title ‘Epigram as narration’ because I am interested in the extent to which different genres of archaic poetry can be seen to be following different conventions – indeed how far there are conventions, and how far (by contrast) genre is definable by little more than occasion. In the case of epigram, this would presumably mean that the mere fact of a piece of verse being inscribed would be the only generic feature, and within that epigram absolutely anything might be expected. A secondary interest is whether (if we were to agree that certain genres do have discernable conventions) we can see the conventions of one genre influencing those of another.
