Homer is the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey, and is revered as the greatest ancient Greek epic poet. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature.When he lived is controversial. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before Herodotus own time, which would place him at around 850 BC- while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BC.For modern scholars the date of Homer refers not to an individual, but to the period when the epics were created.

The consensus is that the Iliad and the Odyssey date from around the 8th century BC, the Iliad being composed before the Odyssey, perhaps by some decades, i.e. earlier than Hesiod, the Iliad being the oldest work of Western literature.
