The difficulty of a lipogram varies depending on which or how many letters are omitted as well as the length of the work.

In his "History of the Lipogram", Perec traces the the lipogram from the 6th century B.C. -- Lasus of Hermione's poetry without the sigma -- to the 20th century -- Ernest Vincent Wright's novel without the letter 'e': Gadsby.

A pangram (Greek: pan gramma, "every letter") or holoalphabetic sentence is a piece of text which uses every letter of the alphabet.
Most pangrams are short, usually a single sentence: the aim in devising a pangram as a word game is to be as brief as possible.
In a sense, the pangram is the opposite of the lipogram, where the aim is to omit one or more letters.
