Abstract:

For almost 3000 years, the Iliad and the Odyssey have thrilled people with tales of adventure in ancient Greece. These stories are known all over the world, but so much about the life of the man responsible for those epic poems remains a mystery that for a while some scholars doubted that he even really existed. Despite the controversies, Homer is still honored as one of civilization's greatest poets. He overcame childhood poverty and adult blindness to achieve fame as a legendary storyteller whose epics kept his audiences spellbound.--From publisher description.
