It is not entirely certain who Homer was. The poet was popularly said to be blind and illiterate, and sang the poems of the Iliad and Odyssey from memory.
Whatever the true story is, the versions of the Illiad and Odyssey that exist today are copies of copies of the "definitive" editions pieced together by scholars in Roman Egypt in the early centuries of the current era. They are attributed to the poet Homer, and are the cornerstones of Western literature.
