dc.description.abstractThe following poems investigate giants--literary giants, historical giants, pop-culture icons--and concepts surrounding them. The nature of pseudepigraphic writing, in which writers attempt to tell stories related to but not already told by biblical or historical texts, has influenced the construction of this work, which also attempts to expand upon unrepresented perspectives and give ancient stories relevance to modern readers by combining several myths into one or placing ancient characters out of context. Many of the names and situations concerning giants are derived from the pseudepigraphical. The Book of Giants, which elaborates an obscure biblical passage in Genesis, which introduces a race of giants, the Nephilim, who are the offspring of angels and human women.en_US
