       |b(An epic is a long narrativepoem that treats a single 
       heroic figure or a group of such figures and concerns an 
       historical event, such as a war or conquest, or an heroic 
       quest or some other significant mythic or legendary 
       achievement that is central to the traditions and belief 
       of its culture ... Epic often focuses on a hero, sometimes
       semi-divine, who performs difficult and virtuous deeds; it
       frequently involves the interaction between human beings 
       and gods.)
