Storyboard Text

  • Virgil, that's our ancestor you're writing about.
  • I wrote an epic about war. It's called the Aeneid, about that trojan Aeneas.
  • At least I'm not in the 2nd century, or this would be considered dog latin.
  • It's the first century CE in Rome.
  • What century is it again?
  • Then why is tragedy also so popular?
  • And WHY is comedy so popular?
  • Good point.
  • Because it's so funny and lifts people's spirits during festivals?
  • I KNOW!!!
  • According to,  “An epigram is a short poem with a clever twist at the end or a concise and witty statement. They are among the best examples of the power of poetry to compress insight and wit.”
  • I'll write an epigram!
  • What's that again?
  • Where'd ya get all of that information?
  • This glowing box thing from the future!
  • You do you, I guess.
