An anagram is a rearrangement of the letters from one word or phrase to make
another word or phrase.  A simple anagram turns  "glue" into "luge".
Creating meaningful anagrams is tricky work.  Creating long anagrams is even
harder.  Here is a truly stupendous example of the art:

"In one of the Bard's best-thought-of tragedies, our insistent hero, Hamlet,
queries on two fronts about how life turns rotten."

can be anagrammed to form:

"To be or not to be: that is the question, whether tis nobler in the mind
to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune."
