This paper examines the theory that the two famous Greek tragedies, "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey", were not actually written by a real person named Homer, but rather that Homer was the collective pen name of all the bards who told these renditions of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey." The paper also summarizes both tragedies and concludes that, no matter who the author, these stories are wonderfully entertaining and greatly influenced the course of the literature, drama, and philosophy that followed.
