Gathering of Chariots

Hello there all. I didn't quite manage to post any more on The Illiad but I got down some of the themes I wanted to broach. Other things I have been thinking as I read it are: 

1. Who or what was Homer?
2. What does the Illiad tell us about the gods and their relationship with mortals?
3. How and when was the poem put together?
4. What accounts for its endurance I'm the Western canon?

By the way, we will be meeting this Sunday the 10th of November at my place at 4 o clock. I will be texting details for those of you who want a reminder of the location.

Until then
