Palinode (Literary Definition)


Palinode Details:
  • A palinode is a poem (or song) which retracts some earlier statement by the poet.
  • Derives from the Greek palinoidia, from palin (again) + oide (song).
  • It's the same palin (again) that shows up in the word palindrome.
Modern Usage of Palinode:
"The more lighthearted palinodes were more successful, such as Geoff Horton's recantation of his youthful view that a martini should be shaken rather than stirred."

Famous writers who have used palinodes:
  • Augustine

  • In 1967, Campomanes invited Bobby Fischer for a series of matches in the Philippines.

[Woman from a Caribbean chess team] [here]


“I lost a man who was more than a brother to me,"
“And, if I may add, I also lost a poker mate, whose passion for and skills in the card game are rivaled only by his love for and deft-laden moves in chess."

~ Des Bautista, longterm friend & owner of Iggy's Inn, Baguio City.
