From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An epic is traditionally a genre of poetry, known as epic poetry.[1] In modern terms, epic is often extended to describing other art forms, such as epic theatre, films, music, novels, television series, and video games,[1] wherein the story has a theme of grandeur and heroism,[2] just as in epic poetry. Scholars argue that the epic has long since become "disembedded" from its origins in oral poetry, appearing in successive narrative media throughout history.[3]

Genres

There are many genres of epic (exclusive of epic poetry): epic fantasy describes works of fantasy, such as in J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.[4] Epic fantasy has been described as containing three elements: it must be a trilogy or longer, its time-span must encompass years or more, and it must contain a large back-story or universe setting in which the story takes place.[4] Epic fantasy is not limited to the Western tradition: for example, Arabic epic literature includes One Thousand and One Nights; and Indian epic poetry includes Ramayana and Mahabharata.[5]

The epic film genre encompasses historical epics, religious epics, and western epics,[6] although it has split into many other genres and subgenres.[which?][7][8]

The female epic examined ways in which female authors have adapted the masculine epic tradition to express their own heroic visions.[9] There are chivalric epics from the Middle Ages, national epics, and pan-national epics. The real-life stories of heroic figures have also been referred to as being epic; examples include Ernest Shackleton's exploration adventures in Antarctica.[10]
