Description

The tradition of Christian epics, born out of Biblical stories and Homeric poems, counts among its most influential exponents Dante, Malory, Tasso, Spenser, Milton, Blake, Goethe, and Joyce (along with Virgil as its "founding father"). Balsamo's Rituals of Literature is devoted to Joyce's and Dante's special contributions to this tradition. By highlighting the integrated nature of its typical tropes, Joyce and Dante establish the historical identity of the Christian epic as a distinct literary genre.
