    Written in epic dactylic hexameter six long syllables staggered by shorter onesthe poem is less of a confirmation of myth as much as a retelling of it. The Saga of Grettir the Strong The Icelandic Sagas — 13thth century The Icelandic Sagas are a collection of dozens of mythological prose histories centered around the Viking diaspora of the 10thth centuries. The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood One sister recounts the story of her younger sister, who died when her car plunged off a bridge. The term "Epic" that i am refering to is the noun and not the adjective. This extensively illustrated book breaks new ground by delving into Benton's rocky relationship to mainstream movies. No doubt, many lament the changes and pine for the myths that western histories and western art once celebrated.

The Greeks have Homer, the Portuguese have Camoes, the Germans possibly might agree on The Nibelungenliedthe Icelanders have their sagas, the Indians the Mahabharatathe Welsh have the Mabinogionbut I don't think there's a single text you could see as the British or even English founding epic.

    Some amended it. The Greeks have Homer, the Portuguese have Camoes, the Germans possibly might agree on The Nibelungenliedthe Icelanders have their sagas, the Indians the Mahabharatathe Welsh have the Mabinogionbut I don't think there's a single text you could see as the British or even English founding epic. Keeping up with it all might set your head spinning, but every page is rich with the sights, sounds, and scents of a city on the brink of a new millennium. One of the most striking examples of these is the Saga of Grettir The Strong, about a powerful outlaw who fends off many enemies before his quick temper and overbearing strength prompts his slow decline. With a wider cast and an anti-imperial angle of vision, interpretations of the western past veered from the triumphant to the tragic. The Saga of Grettir the Strong The Icelandic Sagas — 13thth century The Icelandic Sagas are a collection of dozens of mythological prose histories centered around the Viking diaspora of the 10thth centuries.
