More About Homer

Homer In the Western classical tradition, Homer is the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest of ancient Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature.

When he lived is unknown. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BC, while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BC. Most modern researchers place Homer in the 7th or 8th centuries BC.

The formative influence of the Homeric epics in shaping Greek culture was widely recognized, and Homer was described as the teacher of Greece. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for nearly half of all identifiable Greek literary papyrus finds.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Iliad?

What can you say about a classic?  Jan 5, 2009
It's a classic. Well read. Well delivered. I wish it came on MP3 so I didn't have to change disks so much...
Long and a little dry but unabridged  Nov 14, 2008
I bought this for a class and although it is about 16 hrs of listening!!! it was well worth the purchase. The Iliad was meant to be heard and this is a good production.

It is a bit dry at times, I wish the actor had ACTED a little more, but he has a good voice and does not have any annoying characteristics.

Experience the Iliad in FULL as it was meant to be experienced.
