By giving it human form
Various reasons: a) the concepts of Greek pride, identity, or even unity (panhellenism) are far later than the original writing of the piece, hence Homer will not be impress…ed by later anti-barbarian propaganda b) Homer repeatedly takes a seemingly-impartial stand. He seems to treat the Greeks and Trojans on an almost level scale of respect and a very balanced view of both is given. Therefore Hektor is not actually 'an enemy' but just another character in this epic war who suffers his fate, evoking sympathy from any human being. c) one should not assume Homer is one author or entirely 'Greek' in that very vague sense of the word (again, because that concept of 'Greekness' did not exist yet)
Which ancient civilization is associated with the Twelve Tables an extensive road system and the poets Horace and Virgil?
Homer ['Ομηρος] is the ancient Greek poet who wrote the epic poems of Iliad and Odyssey. Iliad presents the ten years war between the Greeks under the leadership o…f the Achaeans against Troy. Odyssey presents the adventures of the ten years return journey of one of the major leaders of the victorious Greeks - Odysseus king of Ithaca.
He was 61 years old.
they are both Greek poets. Homer was blind and his name was used in the now most common show "The Simpsons".
In ancient Greece, just as in the bible, people did not go by last names; only first names were used; the way a person was differentiated was: by adding where the person was f…rom, or by their fathers name, for instance: Hector from Troy, Isaac son of Abraham. However the Greek poet "Homer" did have a different name at birth; since he was brought into existence near the river Meles his mother Critheis named him Melesigenes; later in life after his many toils and becoming blind (due to natural cause), he adopted the name "Homer" which meant blind person.
I believe it was Homer who first described the metallic (albost robotic) helpers of the god Vulcan (Haephestus, to the Romans) the volcanic god of metallurgy.
They were all members of Greek mythology and had something to do with it and were both great Greek poets and writers If you are doing this for Greek and Roman Myths in Miss Vi…gil's class at TLC in New Mexico do no use this answer!
He wrote The Iliad and The Odyssey. Not only did he write the Iliad and the Odyssey... He helped to organize the pantheon of Greek gods, he gave the Greeks role models to liv…e up to, and he wrote about a period of history that would have otherwise been forgotten. Homer wrote about the Trojan War and it's aftermath. The Trojan War happened during the Greek Dark Ages (c. 1100-800 BCE). The only written history that tells the story of the dark ages are Homer's epic poems. HE DIED ABOUT 800 BC
