Mannerism \Man"ner*ism\, n. [Cf. F. mani['e]risme.]
1. Adherence to a peculiar style or manner; a characteristic
mode of action, bearing, behavior, or treatment of others.
2. Adherence to a peculiar style or manner carried to excess,
especially in literature or art.
Mannerism is pardonable,and is sometimes even
agreeable, when the manner, though vicious, is
natural . . . . But a mannerism which does not sit
easy on the mannerist, which has been adopted on
principle, and which can be sustained only by
constant effort, is always offensive. --Macaulay.
