Über den Autor

Homer, the semi-legendary author of the 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey', is an immortal figure in the annals of Western literary tradition. Though the exact details of his life remain shrouded in mystery, he is traditionally thought to have lived during the late eighth or early seventh century BCE. Homer's works are cornerstone texts of ancient Greek literature and are credited with being major foundational works of the Western canon. The 'Iliad', his epic recounting of the final weeks of the Trojan War, is noted for its vivid characters, including the warrior Achilles, and its profound exploration of the themes of glory, honor, and the capriciousness of the gods. Homer's poetic style is characterized by its use of dactylic hexameter and the extensive employment of formulaic phrases. His work has not only served as a cultural touchstone for ancient Greek society but has also profoundly influenced the literature, art, and philosophy of subsequent generations. While historical verification of Homer as a single author is a subject of scholarly debate, the majestic sweep and emotional depth of his epics have solidified his reputation as one of history's greatest storytellers.
