Homer is any ancient Greek poet that supposedly wrote two epic
poems called the Iliad and The Odyssey, which date back to the 8th
century BC. Some historians believe Homer was blind and many Ionian
cities claim Homer was born in their city. Some literature experts often
questioned if the same poet was wrote both the Iliad and the Odyssey.
While many find it not likely that the Odyssey was written by one
person by analyzing the writing styles in the poem. But most people believe
the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey" are generally accepted to be written by
Homer. Homer's writing style is very unique. There are many writing styles
that he created such as Homeric hymns. Homeric hymns is a style that
celebrates individual gods in poems. Some gods that are often used in
poems are Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Asclepius, Artemis, and Athena.
At one time, Homer was credited for starting a Epic Cycle. An Epic
Cycle is when a new theme becomes the main theme of a lot of poems in
an era. Homer started the theme to right about the Trojan War and
Oedipus and his sons.
