References in classic literature ?
The second period, which produced the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey", needs no description here: but it is very important to observe the effect of these poems on the course of post-Homeric epic. As the supreme perfection and universality of the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey" cast into oblivion whatever pre-Homeric poets had essayed, so these same qualities exercised a paralysing influence over the successors of Homer.
In its third period, therefore, epic poetry shows two divergent tendencies.
Such a poetry could not be permanently successful, because the subjects of which it treats -- if susceptible of poetic treatment at all -- were certainly not suited for epic treatment, where unity of action which will sustain interest, and to which each part should contribute, is absolutely necessary.
If, by "sustained effort," any little gentleman has accomplished an epic,
1* us frankly commend him for the effort -- if this indeed be a thing conk mendable--but let us forbear praising the epic on the effort's account.
While the epic mania, while the idea that to merit in poetry prolixity is indispensable, has for some years past been gradually dying out of the public mind, by mere dint of its own absurdity, we find it succeeded by a heresy too palpably false to be long tolerated, but one which, in the brief period it has already endured, may be said to have accomplished more in the corruption of our Poetical Literature than all its other enemies combined.
The nineteenth-century epic was forged in opposition to Voltaire's historical model.
EPIC was established in 1994, with a stated mission to "focus public attention on emerging civil liberties issues and to protect privacy, the First Amendment, and constitutional values in the information age." Since then, it has fulfilled its mission and is a widely recognized leader in today's electronic privacy wars.
Part 2, "Texts and Contexts," is composed of four chapters in which the author deals with the prehistory of the romance epic in Italy and briefly points out the seminal impact that the Chanson de Roland and the chansons de geste had on Franco-Venetian and Franco-Tuscan cantari.
