Homer (900 B.C. - 800 B.C.)
Very little is known about Homer, including his birth and death dates. However, it is generally accepted that he lived during the period 900-800 B.C. His birthplace is in question – some say Smyrna, others say Ionia. Too, in question, is whether or not he actually wrote the two major works that are traditionally ascribed to his name: The Iliad and The Odyssey The Iliad and The Odyssey are both epics: long, narrative poems that detail the deeds of a hero. The Iliad , based on oral traditions, is written about the Trojan War, specifically focusing on two soldiers: Akhilleus, representing the Greeks, and Hector, the hero of the Trojans. The Odyssey tells the story of Odysseus, King of Ithaka, who, while on his way home from the Trojan War, offends the sea god, Poseidon, and is doomed to another ten years of wandering before being able to return to his home and family. The Homeric Hymns , a series of short poems that honor the Greek gods, is also attributed to Homer.

Homer's epics stand at the beginning of the western canon of literature, exerting enormous influence on the history of fiction and literature in general. The date of Homer's existence was controversial in antiquity and is no less so today. Herodotus said that Homer lived 400 years before his own time, which would place him at around 850 BC; but other ancient sources gave dates much closer to the supposed time of the Trojan War , perhaps from 1194 to 1184 BC.

  • Born: c. 800 B.C. Birthplace: Greece Died: c. 750 B.C. Best Known As: The author of the Iliad and the Odyssey
Homer is the man who, according to legend, wrote the two great epics of Greek history: the Iliad (the tale of Achilles and the Trojan War) and the Odyssey (about the travels of Odysseus ). Both books are considered landmarks in human literature and Homer is therefore often cited as the starting point of Western literary and historical tradition. The details of Homer's life are a mystery; some scholars believe that no such man ever existed, and that the works credited to him were actually told and gathered by many people over many centuries. Other stories give various birthplaces and ages for Homer and suggest he was a wandering poet or minstrel. Homer is usually said to have been blind, a point on which nearly all the legends agree. Other ancient authors include Virgil Aeschylus Aesop Tacitus and Plutarch Previous: Holly Hunter (Actor)

Winslow Homer:
The Obtuse Bard
Winslow Homer recorded an obtuse poetic side in his art. Homer's intensely personal phenomenological side also may function as a device to convey feelings and ideas following a technique suggested by Washington Allston. On The Obtuse Bard Website, visual examples and documented research papers about Homer's obtuse and intensely personal side are available for viewing and reading.
Homer viewed the world influenced by the ideas of those who surrounded him as a child in Cambridge, Massachusetts, especially the ideas of painter/poet Washington Allston , Allston's brother-in-law Richard Henry Dana Sr. , and Allston's friend Benjamin Welles . In the writings of Allston's friends, especially Dana Sr. and Welles, there are discussions encouraging people to literally see "forms of departed friends in the white clouds" as common everyday experiences. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (to whom Allston read his " Lectures on Art "), William Cullen Bryant (a friend of Dana Sr.), and James Russell Lowell (who replaced Longfellow at Harvard) also made references to seeing such illusions in their poetry . For most people today, experience with such images is usually more abstracted, limited to images such as "The Man in the Moon" or the constellations. While we may be familiar with references in literature to people seeing illusions, most of us have little actual experience seeing illusions. In fact, in todays world, we tend to

As a group these poems told the entire history of the Trojan War; each poem, however, only covered a small part of that history. Many classicists believe that the two surviving Homeric epics (probably the only Homeric epics) were in fact composed by several individuals; in the absence of any evidence to the contrary, most classicists accept the overall Greek idea of a single author. Whatever the compositional history of the poems, they were set down into writing within a few decades of their composition; the growing urbanization of Greek society led to the rediscovery of writing (learned from the Phoenicians this time), and the Homeric poems were committed to writing very quickly. Time and transmission added much extraneous material to the poems, but in their basic character and outline they seem to be the original compositions.

    Homer was A Greek poet, to whom are attributed the great epics, the Iliad, the story of the siege of Troy, and the Odyssey, the tale of Ulysses's wanderings. The place of his birth is doubtful, probably a Greek colony on the coast of Asia Minor, and his date, once put as far back as 1200 BC, from the style of the poems attributed to him is now thought to be much later. Arguments have long raged over whether his works are in fact by the same hand, or have their origins in the lays of Homer and his followers (Homeridae), and there seems little doubt that the works were originally based on current ballads which were much modified and extended. Of the true Homer, nothing is positively known. The so-called Homeric hymns are certainly of a later age.

    Winslow Homer (1836–1910)
    Winslow Homer was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1836, the second of three sons of Henrietta Benson and Charles Savage Homer. His father, a hardware importer, and his mother, an amateur watercolorist, encouraged his early interest in art. Given that no art schools and no art institutions existed in the Boston area during Homer’s youth, he, like many of his contemporaries, had to piece together his own artistic training. He began by working for the commercial lithographer John H. Bufford, an acquaintance of his father. In 1857, after two years as an apprentice to Bufford, Homer left the firm, rented a studio in the Ballou Publishing House in Boston, and launched his career as a freelance illustrator. He initially worked for Ballou’s Pictorial and Harper’s Weekly among other weekly magazines, and later illustrated various literary texts by celebrated authors, including the poets William Cullen Bryant, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and Alfred Lord Tennyson. In 1859, Homer moved to New York, where he continued to freelance for

For over three centuries scholars have debated whether an actual person named Homer existed; some have speculated that the name Homer is actually a collective name for a group of bards (the Homeridae) who redacted (edited) a existing cycle of oral epics about 800 B.C.E. Others believe, based on textual evidence, that one person did compose or redact the two major Homeric compositions. In any case, stating an opinion about this question would be a good way to start a bar fight at a conference of classical scholars.... Certainly, there are few details about Homer's life. According to classical sources, Homer lived around 1200 B.C.E.; today dates of the 8th or 7th Century B.C.E. are quoted. Homer is traditionally described as being blindbased on one Archaic Greek fragmentbut the visual quality of his work makes this hard to believe; perhaps he became blind later in life.
