Product Description

This is a two page (one-sheet) handout with a very short selection of information about Epic Poetry as a medium with excerpts from "The Epic of Gilgamesh", "The Iliad", and "Beowulf."

I use this for my creative writing class to give them a quick introduction to the history of important epic poems as we discuss the characteristics of epic poems.

(Pair with "Characteristics of Epic Poems", "Epic Poem" Assignment", and "Modern and Contemporary Epic Poems")
