Famous quotes containing the word epic:

    The epic of disbelief
    Blares oftener and soon, will soon be constant.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Primitive times are lyrical, ancient times epical, modern times dramatic. The ode sings of eternity, the epic imparts solemnity to history, the drama depicts life. The characteristic of the first poetry is ingeniousness, of the second, simplicity, of the third, truth.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    The drama is complete poetry. The ode and the epic contain it only in germ; it contains both of them in a state of high development, and epitomizes both.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
