Welcome to Becky's WCT Webpage!
( This page is devoted to all the lil voices...)

The debate: 
Did Homer really Exist?
Did Homer truly write The Odyssey and The Iliad?
Was Homer actually blind?

As this debate continues on indefinitely, we shall for the moment ignore all the previous raised questions and take a moment to reflect on the eloquent similes that are inherent in these works. Here are two examples of the so-called "Homeric Simile" :

"The two immortals stepped briskly as wild doves, quivering, keen to defend the fighting men of Argos."
-Fagles, Iliad 189.896-'7 

"As hinds of heifers in springtime, sated in pasture, bound about a meadow, 
so they, holding up the folds of their lovely garments, darted down the hollow path, 
and their hair like a crocus flower streamed about their shoulders."
-To Dionysus (Lacuna) II. 169-183
 

Pictures soon to be up and running..
