Human life and feelings should be spoken mainly in epic poems. The life of epic being human life or humanized life, must to be true to its pattern, exhibit a representative amount though not a plethora of a human mood, says John Clark. He also adds in regard with human life that a poem, without putting something of his day and generation in it, would not be advisable. All epic poets have written for their contemporaries. Greek epic has always been felt to be somehow a type of significant human experience and some generations have wanted to codify and explain the significance, sometimes with an inhibiting effect on writers.
