Just the Facts:
  • Name: Homeros
  • Known in English as: Homer
  • Dates: after c. 850 BCE
  • Place: Greece

  • Who he was: purported author of two Greek epics: The Iliad, about the behavior of Achilles during the Trojan War; and The Odyssey, about the wanderings of Odysseus after the Trojan War.

Let's consider this a placeholder as I build out the site.
Once that's done, I'll be back to fill in the details--an essay,
links to online and Amazon books, and more. I'll be posting
updates on Facebook and Twitter. Follow along!

Until I get to it, there's always Wikipedia!
