In the field of classics, the term "Homeric epics" refers specifically to the Iliad and Odyssey, two epics attributed to the Ancient Greek poet Homer. Despite the title of this pair of works, ancient Greece's tradition of oral poetry makes Homer's identity and role as an author of these works a matter of considerable debate.
