More From Lascelles Abercrombie
- "By the general process of epic poetry, I mean the way this form of art has constantly responded to the profound needs of the society in which it was made."
- "Poetry is the work of poets, not of peoples or communities; artistic creation can never be anything but the production of an individual mind."
- "The reason can only be this: heroic poetry depends on an heroic age, and an age is heroic because of what it is, not because of what it does."
