Hamilton, Essential Literary Terms (98-111; 150-166) -- Jerz: EL150 (Intro to Literary Study)

"An epiphany means a sudden, overwhelming insight or revelation evoked by a commonplace object or a scene in a poem or a work of fiction."

This term was interesting to me because it can be related to religion. As stated within the text, this word means a manifestation of God's presence in the world. It is just so interesting how much of a role that religion plays in poetry and literature. As you continue to read on, it says that imagery can be related through religion. In addition, one of the poets that was recognized was T.S. Eliot. which we have just read. It is so interesting how so many literary terms can be applied to poetry and literature.

It seems that everything we have read or read about has something to do with religion. I think it's possible to take absolutely anything and tie it to religion. Religion is a foundation for basically anything.
