AbstractIn the manner of an epyllion, this fictional poetic piece explores how a modern epic might be constructed. Using a science fiction setting, two sides of a growing conflict in Earth’s solar system are followed on their respective journeys and in their inevitable convergence as each group fights for the truths or lies they have come to believe. It also serves as an investigation into the composition process of an epic in an effort to better understand the creative choices of classical works of this genre.
