Thomas Gray’s Epitaph: Summary & In the Epitaph, Thomas Gray shows his discontent toward the way that life and death are categorized on this planet. He speaks of earth as a place which holds people for the time being that they are going through this . For years, the gunfight at the O.K. Corral has been a story about men, written by men, told to men, most of whom work indoors and chafe at the modern world’s restrictions, and sometimes think yearningly about just plain shooting some sonofabitch who richly deserves it.

It is intimated in the Edinburgh Review, (Vol. II. p. ,) that he took the first hint of this epitaph from one in Latin, written on Jacob Tonson, the bookseller, by an Eton scholar, which was printed, with an English translation, in the Gentleman's Magazine for February, The translation is an unsuccessful paraphrase. As a young man in , Franklin had composed his own mock epitaph which read: The Body of B.

EVEN such is time, that takes in trust Our youth, our joys, our all we have, And pays us but with earth and dust; Who, in the dark and silent grave, When we have wandered all our ways, Shuts up the story of our days: But from this earth, this grave. Epitaph: A Novel of the O.K.

Mary Doria Russell's book about the characters, and players in Tombstone does not disappoint, it's a wonderfully written story of those hard times from to October 26 The romances, the politics, the corruption, the shootings, the saloons, the dusty streets, starry nights, are all part of the enviroment of the conflicts with the Earp's /5.

OR: You can do a combo of both For example, Joaquin Deadman would have a headstone in the shape of an electric chair, and perhaps an epitaph.

As a young man, Benjamin Franklin wrote a humorous epitaph for himself in which he described himself as “food for worms.” He did not intend this epitaph to be used as the official epitaph on his gravestone, (the wording for which he included in his Will).

An attempt is herein made to furnish a book, not compiled from previously published works, but a collection of curious inscriptions copied from gravestones. An epitaph, of course, is the set of words written on someone's gravestone. Shakespeare, being a great writer, (the greatest writer of all time?) wrote his own.

And generally, by whomsoever written, epitaphs were an attempt to record on behalf of the dead. Very rarely indeed among the better kind do we find epitaphs free from “self” assertion, either on the part of the departed, or those responsible for the erection of the memorial – which often records the generosity of the latter as ostentatiously as the virtues of the former/5(4).

Whether the concept of the Epitaph, comparing a printer’s body to an old book, was original with Franklin has also been the subject of discussion and inquiry.

He has been charged with plagiarizing a Latin epitaph on Jacob Tonson that was printed in the Gentleman’s Magazine in This charge is without foundation, of course, if Franklin. William Claude Dukenfield (Janu – Decem ), better known as W. Fields, was an American comedian, actor, juggler, and writer.

Aeschylus was born of a noble family near Athens in BC. He took part in the Persian Wars and his epitaph, said to have been written by himself, represents him as fighting at Marathon.
