The Very Idea: Epic In The Head -- On Calliope's Jalopy: Epic Rebuilt 1790-1800 -- Under Correction: Epic Conscripted 1800-1805 -- In Expiation: Epic Atonement 1805-1815 -- In Style: Epic Plush 1815-1820 -- To The Ending Doom: Epic Apocalypse 1820-1830 -- In Session : Forensic Epic 1830-1840 -- There And Back: Emigrant Epic 1840-1850 -- On Impulse: Spasmodic Epic 1850-1860 -- In Plight Of Troth: Mythological Epic 1860-1870 -- For All The World : Eclectic Epic 1870-1895 -- At Long Last: Edwardian Epic 1895-1910. Herbert F. Tucker. Includes Bibliographical References (p. [602]-668) And Index.
