The epic calls to mind the famous works of ancient poets such as Homer, Virgil, and Ovid. These long, narrative poems, defined by valiant characters and heroic deeds, celebrate events of great importance in ancient times. In this thought-provoking study, Christopher N. Phillips shows in often surprising ways how this exalted classical form proved as vital to American culture as it did to the great societies of the ancient world. Through close readings of James Fenimore Cooper, Lydia Sigourney, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Herman Melville, as well as the transcendentalists, Phillips traces the rich history of epic in American literature and art from early colonial times to the late nineteenth century. Phillips shows that far from fading in the modern age, the epic form was continuously remade to frame a core element of American cultural expression. He finds the motive behind this sustained popularity in the historical interrelationship among the malleability of the epic form, the idea of a national culture, and the prestige of authorship—a powerful dynamic that extended well beyond the boundaries of literature. By locating the epic at the center of American literature and culture, Phillips’s imaginative study yields a number of important finds: the early national period was a time of radical experimentation with poetic form; the epic form was crucial to the development of constitutional law and the professionalization of visual arts; engagement with the epic synthesized a wide array of literary and artistic forms in efforts to launch the United States into the arena of world literature; and a number of writers shaped their careers around revising the epic form for their own purposes. Rigorous archival research, careful readings, and long chronologies of genre define this magisterial work, making it an invaluable resource for scholars of American studies, American poetry, and literary history.

When Kiyo’s father left Japan, his mother told him never to return: there was no future there for him. Shinji Sato arrived in California determined to plant his roots in the land of opportunity even though he could not become a citizen or own land. Education was his watchword. He and his wife and their nine American-born children labored in the fields together, building a successful farm. Yet at the outbreak of World War II, when Kiyo, the eldest, was eighteen, the Satos were ordered to Poston Internment Camp. This memoir tells the story of the family’s struggle to endure in these harsh conditions and to rebuild their lives afterward in the face of lingering prejudice. Rejected by several nursing schools due to her ethnicity, Kiyo eventually became a captain in the Army Nursing Corps. The Satos returned home to find their farm in ruins, occupied by another family, but through fortitude and ingenuity, they persevered and ultimately succeeded. From the Hardcover edition.

The Serpent King eloquently interweaves history and legend with fictional biography. It paints an intriguing picture of life in an ancient land with its own set of rules, customs and beliefs - now sadly lost. This is a sensitive work that accomplishes what good writing should; it affirms one's faith in the human spirit. -Robin Bradford, producer/writer/director, Bright Line Films In the tenth century, Prince Quetzalcoatl leads the Toltec nation in an unprecedented period of artistic and spiritual excellence. Opposed by his half-brother Tezcatlipoca, the prince is overthrown. He regroups the Toltec nation at the pyramids of Teotihuacan, with the help of his female companion and his spiritual guide. The prince is also joined by a force of 100,000 Mexican warriors led by his maternal grandfather, Cloud Serpent. Together they march to Tula, the Toltec capital, to confront the usurpers. Before the prince can seek his ultimate vision quest and view his people's future, the final showdown must take place for control of the Toltec nation. How this battle ends is totally unexpected, but has become legendary to the Mexican people. Author John Osmond is a stone sculptor who has spent 30 years working with the stone carvers of Mexico. He was motivated to write The Serpent King by his love for and involvement with the myth and legend of these people. Originally from New South Wales, Australia, Osmond now lives near Mexico City. His next book is set in modern times and considers the mythology of Quetzalcoatl. Publisher's website: http: //www.eloquentbooks.com/TheSerpentKing.htm
