*Ekphrasis (a word relatively new to dictionaries) is the use of words to comment on a piece of visual art. One of the earliest and most commonly cited forms of ekphrasis occurs in The Iliad, where Homer provides a long and discursive account of the elaborate scenes embossed on the shield of Achilles.
