Homer, the legendary Greek poet, is often credited with having created ""The Iliad"" and ""The Odyssey"". Scholars debate whether or not such a figure actually existed, yet what remains certain is the importance of these two works as foundational texts of Western literature. This updated volume in the celebrated ""Bloom's Modern Critical Views"" series explores Homer's trans formative effect on epic and bardic poetry, as well as his narrative technique and use of language and meter. Integrating select, full-length critical essays from key literary publications with a chronology, notes on the contributors, bibliography, and more, ""Homer, Updated Edition"", will further understanding of the fabled bard and spark lively academic discussion.
