The Tale of the Tribe
Ezra Pound and the Modern Verse Epic
Michael André Bernstein


Michael Andre Bernstein offers a systematic analysis of the tradition of modern epic poetry--its different structural problems and their diverse but inter-related solutions, and considers issues central to contemporary literary and philosophical theory.
