An epigraph is an effective literary tool that some writers utilize to focus the reader toward the theme, purpose, or concerns behind the work [12].
Generally a brief quotation taken from another piece of literature, the epigraph is oftentimes not a direct commentary upon the work but used to establish a mindset or offer insight into the factors that contributed to the manifestation of the work.
The epigraph to A Raisin in the Sun is Langston Hughes' poem "Montage of a Dream Deferred" which was written as a critique of Harlem life.

 Epigraph: Citation as Authorial Guide
The epigraph is an unusual, though not uncommon, form of citation.
This shadow looms large because it is formed not only by the body of the epigraph but also by the scholar, philosopher, or poet, and textual source from which it is taken.
As Eliot's use of the epigraph in Middlemarch demonstrates, the epigraph is not a simplistic citation device, but rather a complex system between texts, authors, and readers, which the author uses to control the reading of the text and to establish an ethos.

 THE LOST EPIGRAPH by Raymond Federman   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
The passage quoted below [by Italo Calvino] [tentatively considered on 11/20/85 as a potential epigraph to a novel then in progress entitled The Chronicle of a Disaster] was uncovered [8/12/95] while cataloguing the [handwritten] manuscript of that novel.
This would-be epigraph [which does not appear in the published version of the book entitled To Whom It May Concern] reveals the radical shift in the author's view and function of literature [some ten years earlier].
It is really unfortunate that this marvelous [most valuable and revealing] statement by Italo Calvino did not appear with the [published] book [in 1990] for it does certainly inform the entire oeuvre of the author [especially its duplicity] [its doubleness] [not to mention its evasiveness].

 Epigraph Issue 1, 2006
Epigraph had, in the view of some, become rather tired in format and content, and certainly its distribution lists had become progressively out of date.
At a meeting of the ILAE Website Task Force in October, therefore, the relative roles of Epigraph and of www.ilae-epilepsy.org were debated and a number of decisions were made.
Epigraph will now come out in three online issues each year (winter, summer and autumn), with a single additional print edition published in the spring for inclusion in conference bags of the ILAE regional and international conferences.

This epigraph is from a short essay by the seventeenth-century British poet John Donne.

The funeral bell of the title and epigraph introduce the idea of human mortality, a reminder that all human beings are destined to die.

Epigraphs are those neat quotations that authors put at the start of chapters (or even at the end of chapters: Knuth puts things at the ends of chapters of the TeXbook).

 Al-Ahram Weekly | An epigraph and much effort   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
[In his epigraph to The Prison of Life] Tawfiq Al-Hakim claims that his hope is greater than his effort and that his effort is greater than his talent, while his talent is the prisoner of his nature, a great part of which he has inherited from his parents.
Thus I hope that Mr Tawfiq will pardon me if I say that the epigraph to his book is nothing but a mirage, that it may look like water to a thirsty man but only until the moment he draws near and then finds nothing.
Having said all of this I am compelled to say, motivated not by any attempt to please the author of the book but rather to state the truth, that the book in question [The Prison of Life] is most enjoyable.

 The Cooper Epigraphs (via CobWeb/3.1 planetlab2.cs.unc.edu)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Epigraphs are an often overlooked clue to the meaning of the works in which they are used.
For the Coopers, father and daughter, title-page epigraphs often seem important to the underlying theme of the novel as a whole; frequently, they seem intended to carry with them not only the selected words of the epigraph itself, but all or part of the complete work from which they have been taken.
Except for a few epigraphs attributed to "Duo," which appear to be of his own composition, Cooper did not emulate Scott in misleading his readers with faked quotations or phoney attributions.

 E. A. Poe Society of Baltimore
In the Faustian context of her strivings, Ligeia's invocations at first strike an odd or inappropriate note, despite the immediate situation, but the explanation for them and for much else lies in the sentences quoted from the passage used earlier as an epigraph and attributed to Joseph Glanville.
Of particular importance is a sentence that Ligeia omits (as does her husband, who afterwards repeats her words).
The ways of God in Nature, as in Providence, are not as our ways; nor are the models that we frame any way commensurate to the vastness, profundity, and unsearchableness of His works, which have a depth in them greater than the well of Democritus.

 SparkNotes: The Sun Also Rises: A Note on the Epigraph
Gertrude Stein was an avant-garde American poet at the center of a group of painters and expatriate writers living in Paris after World War I. Among those in her circle were the artist Pablo Picasso and the writers Sherwood Anderson and Ernest Hemingway.
The passage contrasts the transient nature of human generations with the eternal survival of nature: the world endures, and the sun continues to rise and set despite the inevitable passage of each human generation into death.
Hemingway’s juxtaposition of the two epigraphs produces an ambivalent tone.

When I open a new book, I love it when the author begins with a series of epigraphs collected over a lifetime.
It gives me a sense of the workpoints, the guy-lines, the inspiration, the parameters, the trajectories in and out of the thin places, from which the magic has been worked.
With this in mind, I have decided to give Myth*ing Links a Portal Page of epigraphs to illustrate some of the qualities of wonder, insight, and beauty that inspire me -- and that I hope you'll find within these many pages.
