Today's winner is: JAMES GILETTO, 10 Camden, N.J. Who Was Elomer? There are two great poerns, :alled the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey," which are the greatest vorks of ancient Greek liter- ture. Many people consider hem to be the greatest poems :ver written in any language. Who wrote them? For a long ime it was believed that they were written by a man named Corner. He was supposed to be )lind and to have lived in Chios in Asia Minor. But, today, most experts on the subject doubt Â·hat Homer, or any other one man, made up the poems by hhnself. Then how were they written? Mobody knows for sure, but this is what the experts believe: In ancient Greece there were many poets who traveled from ;own to town telling stories. They entertained kings, noblemen and commoners by reciting poems made up by themselves or by others. One of the favorite subjects of these storytellers was the Trojan War. Each poet had his own version of that great event and made up his own way of telling it. But at that time writing was jrobably unknown. So poems were learned by heart and passed on by word of mouth. Every poet would add something of his own to a poem, and so the traditional tales would keep changing. Then, about 800 B.C., a very great poet came along. Perhaps his name was Homer and perhaps it was not. He put together many of the older poetic stories of the Trojan War and made them into one great poem. It was putt ogether in .the same comes from Ilion, another name for Troy. A little later the "Odyssey" was called the "Iliad," which way. This was done either by Homer or another great poet. The "Iliad" and "Odyssey" were so much better than the other versions of the Trojan War story that almost all the traveling poets learned them and recited them all over Greece. When writing was introduced, Homer's poems were written down. Since the poems were very popular, many copies were made. And so today we have these two great stories that were recited by a wonderful poet almost 3,000 years ago. * * * FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. Why do. birds fly south? 2.
