Lecture 8 09/22/2011 Are Iliad and Odyssey written by the same author? Separatists’ argument: Different styles (see the above comparison). They argue that Homer is a name used to print the collective works, and that it was written by two different authors. Their argument touches upon the non-linear storyline (flashbacks, constant changes of settings), used in the Odyssey. It is hard to refute this argument because of a lack of documented evidence of Homer’s existence. Different treatment to characters. There are different natures of the characters- Achilles is a straightforward version of a hero. Odysseus who is skilled in contending is not straightforward. He comes up with strategies and schemes and finds other ways to overcome the adversity that he faces. They are so different that they can’t be issued from the same creator of consciousness. Chronology of the Iliad is linear- beginning to end. In the Odyssey- what happens when it happens- chronology is not linear- flashbacks and convoluted. Could be considered two differently entire imaginations.
