Epic Poetry in the 21st Century
We all are fan of epic poetry. There are many poems in differentcountries and some of the poems are considered to be a part of national heritage and treasure. Think of Iliad and Odyssey. They were written originally in Greece but in our time, they are considered to be a part of the heritage of European civilization. Well, you have to agree with me on one mandate that most of the epic poems werewritten many years ago or I should say many centuries ago. I cannot think of any notable epic of the twentieth century in any language.
What about the twentieth century? I wonder whether we can find any national epic in this century. What is your idea about it?
