Summary
"Every great civilization from the Bronze Age to the present day has produced epic poems. Epic poetry has always had a profound influence on other literary genres, including its own parody in the form of mock-epic. This Companion surveys over four thousand years of epic poetry from the Babylonian Epic of Gilgamesh to Derek Walcott's postcolonial Omeros. Unique in its coverage of the vast scope of the epic tradition, this book is an essential companion for students of literature of all kinds and in all ages."--BOOK JACKET
