Brief Definition

An Epic is a type of poem which is a lengthy narrative. This type of poem usually tells a tale of a heroic deed or an adventure. This tale of events which takes place within the epic poem is usually significant to a tale or a culture. A good example of this style of poem would be the Odyssey by Homer. This type of poem has a list of ten main components, starting with a beginning and usually ending with the main character or hero descending to hell or another realm. An ep

features many struggles for the characters, with rises and falls throughout to convey a message or theme to the reader. Many times, greater themes are hidden within the text and tale of an epic, giving the piece more than one meaning. Because of this, many people use these types of poems to study philosophy, humanity, culture, religion and more. This type of poem has continued to remain a popular and well studied type of poetry throughout decades. 

Epic Poem Example

REFLECTION

**REFLECTION**

Running through a wheat dream
Clear skies, worms and flies, my face cries
Surrounded by silver streams
I stumbled into a valley where sleepness never dies
A manger on fire, burning embryo of lies
no time for final good-bye's

Waking up alone in the middle of a field
Rain falls from the sky, to bless my soul
Above the silver lining of mirrored clouds
I lay a bouquet of flowers on your grave
Angered by the thought of my birth
Where has my salvation gone?

Rescued by the hand, of the one I can not see
Tormented in life's final step 
Silent mistreated never understand
Arid of hate dooming everyday
Something evil ruins the last hold of my hand
My mouth hit by the door, when I pray
A ricochet shot when my life was revealed 
Fallen in and out, after unwanted betrayal tounges 
Alone with my reflection is where I stand
Broken Mirrors, 
the only thing I see!
7 years of current bad luck.
