About this title

Synopsis:

This title includes an essay on the state of epic poetry in an age of shorter attention spans. We live in an age of short attention spans: twitter messages, sitcoms, and fifteen minute celebrities. For the serious poet who has long poem ambitions, the situation is discouraging. The extended poetic epic that presupposed ample world views and larger language confidences is no longer possible today. How can we restore the epic impulse in our time?

Review:

"A fractured hero quest...." (Frank Menchaca Executive Vice President Gale Learning and Research Solutions) "A lone genius, a bombshell of gravity." (Prof. Willis Barnstone Indiana University)"
