I can't say I'm very knowledgeable about epic poetry, but this book is very good. Just the story itself is poignant, tragic, and glorious all at once. It's a stirring reminder of the importance of working to maintain the best things about humanity, even when the course of events seems to be flowing the other way. I don't know enough about poetry to comment on its quality, besides just saying that it sounds good to me. But hopefully the story is the more important thing.
