Be still my heart; thou hast known worse than this.

Homer

The two earliest surviving poetic works of ancient Greece, the 'Iliad' and the 'Odyssey' are attributed to 'Homer', but it seems likely that no such individual existed, the works being developed over an extended period of time until they achieved their final form in the 6th century BC. Whatever their origins, these epic poems were a major influence in the development of Greek culture.
