Homer (ca. 8th century BC) is the traditional author of the Iliad and Odyssey. His life and origins are the subject of intense debate. No reliable biographical information exists, though legends abound. The name Homer is related to a Greek word meaning “blind,” giving rise to the tradition of Homer as the blind bard. Many modern scholars dismiss the notion of Homer as a single author, arguing that the works attributed to him are based on many generations of oral story telling. When speaking of Homer, these scholars are referring to the function of redacting oral tradition into a coherent whole.
