CWW: Who Was The Real Homer?

April 20, 2016 – It’s Classical Wisdom Wednesday, presented by Classical Wisdom Weekly — bringing ancient wisdom to modern minds, every Wednesday morning before your first cup of coffee.

You have probably heard the name “Homer” (the classical Greek, not Simpson). He is a man that we are culturally and literarily so indebted to that his epics The Iliad and The Odyssey are often considered the first true masterpieces of the Western world.

But there are so many questions about this mysterious author. Did he write? Or was he a traveling bard? Was he really only one man? Could he possibly have been a woman? Most interestingly of all, did he even really exist?

Your guide through the classical landscape is Van Bryan, Associate Editor of Classical Wisdom Weekly. You can catch Classical Wisdom Wednesday every week before your first cup of coffee, right here on the History Author Show.
