|Homer (c. 8th century BCE), list of works|
|Seven ancient cities claimed Homer as a native. His actual existence, however - let alone his authorship of The Iliad and The Odyssey - has never been conclusively established. The life of the poet has been a subject of historical controversy since ancient times; some traditions hold that he was a slave, or that he was blind, but such conjectures seem to be unfounded analogies to other poets. The epics themselves are widely believed to have been composed by two different poets, but many scholars site stylistic unities to suggest that each poem was the creation, from traditional lore, of one poet, not an amalgamation of many poets' work. Regardless, the epics are cornerstones of western literature and endless sources of self-knowledge and entertainment.|
