Review the examples of oral epic poetry located in this week’s Electronic Reserve Readings.
Write an epic poem of 20 to 50 lines that tells the story of a challenging situation you may have faced that brought about a transition in your life. (You may use a fictional character and situation if you prefer.) In your poem describe how you or the main character uses strengths to overcome the challenge.
