Homer
Greece: Classical Poet and Writer
Born& Died: 9th Century B.C.
Homer is a controversial poet both because of his life and works. But this in no way has affected the fame and greatness of his two classical poetical works Iliad and Odyssey. Both these literary masterpieces of Homer are a unique blend of poetry and tale and are based on the Greek-Trojan War which took place in the 13th century B.C. Iliad is the tale of a 10 year long Trojan War while Odyssey is poetical narrative of ten years of wandering of a Greek Commander named Odysseus. For the composition of these two epics Homer collected facts about the legendary Trojan War, taking great pins. However, some believe that Iliad and Odyssey are not the creation of a single poet, but are an outcome of the combined efforts of several poets. Modern Homeric criticism began in 1795 which attempted to prove that Iliad was derived from earlier ballads. The origin of the poems remains a subject of controversy. They show many characteristics of traditional oral epics and some objects described in them have been dated archaeologically to pre-1200 B.C. Whatever the reality, both these works have been of an invaluable help to the modern world for the reason that these are the only sources that grow light on the life and times of the contemporary 13th century Greece.
