This study presents a comprehensive view of the epic tradition from Homer through Virgil, Ariosto, Tasso, Spenser, and the host of minor writers who helped create the idiom within which these writers worked, to the great achievements of Milton. Detailed studies of individual authors in historical context link to develop a powerful explanation of how and why the epic changed from Homer to Milton.
