Definition of alliteration: (also known as ‘head rhyme’ or ‘initial rhyme’), the repetition of the same sounds—unusually initial consonants of words or of stressed syllables—in any sequence of neighboring words: ‘Landscape-lover, lord of language’ (Tennyson).

Epic: a long narrative poem celebrating the great deeds of one or more legendary heroes, in a grand ceremonious style. The hero, usually protected by or even descended from gods, performs superhuman exploits in battle or in marvelous voyages, often saving or founding or a nation—as in Virgil’s Aeneid (30-20 BC) —or the human race itself, in Milton’s Paradise Lost (1667).
