This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Ancient Civilizations - Key Figures - Homer. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Greek poet Homer was born sometime between the 12th and 8th centuries BC, possibly somewhere on the coast of Asia Minor. He is famous for the epic poems The Iliad and The Odyssey, which have had an enormous effect on Western culture, but very little is known about their alleged author.
According to Plato, that in his time many believed that Homer was the educator of all Greece. The Iliad and The Odyssey have provided not only seeds but fertilizer for almost all the other arts and sciences in Western culture.
For the Greeks, Homer was a godfather of their national culture, chronicling its mythology and collective memory in rich rhythmic tales that have permeated the collective imagination. Homer’s real life may remain a mystery, but the very real impact of his works continues to illuminate our world today.
