Homer

Post  Alianny on Tue Nov 25, 2014 8:21 pm

Homer was a Greek poet born sometime between the 12th and 8th centuries BC, possibly somewhere on the coast of Asia Minor. He is famous for the epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey, which have had an enormous effect on Western culture, but very little is known about Homer. He was believed by the ancient Greeks to have been the first and best of the epic poets. Most of his poems were based on the Trojan War, which was very famous in Greek history. Smile

Alianny this was an interesting topic of yours that talked about Homer a Greek poet. Another thing is that you mention that his poems were mostly based on the Trojan War which was an effect on the history at that time. Another thing is that you mention that he was sometime born between the 12th and 8th century. A really important fact that you have mention was that he invented two epic poems that were the Iliad and The Odyssey. Very Happy

Great job Alianny! Did you know that an epic poem is a long poem that tells the deeds of a great hero? In the Iliad the Greek hero was Achilles and in the Odyssey the Greek hero was Odysseus. Very interesting topic to talk about, good job!
