anthology


anthology
anthology (n.) 1630s, "collection of poetry," from L. anthologia, from Gk. anthologia "collection of small poems and epigrams by several authors," lit. "flower-gathering," from anthos "a flower" (see ANTHER (Cf. anther)) + logia "collection, collecting," from legein "gather" (see LECTURE (Cf. lecture) (n.)). Modern sense (which emerged in Late Greek) is metaphoric, "flowers" of verse, small poems by various writers gathered together.
