The plots of ‘The Iliad’ and ‘The Odyssey’ can be described as fiction set in a dubious historical setting. Yet, despite the historical inaccuracy of Homer’s epic poems, the works provide great insight into the oral history of ancient Greece that was kept alive by poets and bards up to the time of Homer, whose ‘Iliad’ was written around 700 BCE. Though Homer’s epics are not technically historical, they are Homer’s interpretation of much older oral history.
