Ioannes Heywood

Epigrams appellare licet series libellorum ab Ioanne Heywood medio saeculo XVI scriptorum in quibus seriem proverbiorum et aphorismatum versibus Anglicis concatenavit, titulis variis divulgatorum:

  • A dialogue of the effectual proverbs in the English tongue concerning marriages
  • First hundred epigrams
  • Three hundred epigrams on three hundred proverbs
  • The fifth hundred epigrams
  • A sixth hundred epigrams

De quo opere sic censuit Ioannes Florius:

The Greekes and Latines thanke Erasmus, and our Englishmen make much of Heywood: for proverbs are the pith, the proprieties, the proofes, the purities, the elegances, as the commonest so the commendablest phrases of a language.
– Ioannes Florio, Second Fruites, "To the Reader"
Graeci et Latini Erasmo gratias agunt, Heywoodum autem Angli nostri magnificant. Proverbia enim sunt medullae, proprietates, probationes, puritates, elegantiae cuiusque linguae; sunt sententiae communissimae necnon laudatissimae.

His libellis multae locutiones Anglicae primum referuntur, inter quas:
