"Poets read history to collect flowers, not fruits; they attend to fanciful images, not the effects of social institutions."

- John Adams, Thoughts on Government, April 1776
The Fall of Arthur, a New Epic Poem

ÔÇťArthur eastward in arms purposed
his war to wage on the wild marches,
over seas sailing to Saxon lands,
from the Roman realm ruin defending."

Thus begins a new epic poem by the beloved author of The Lord of the Rings. What's that, you ask? How can write a new poem when he's been dead since 1973? Bah! What is death among friends?
