Description

The narrator of the Iliad and the Odyssey[…]belongs neither to the stories he tells nor to the real world. He is not a fictional character living in the heroic world of the epic, nor is he the historical author known as Homer.[…]This metacharacter, the Homeric narrator, is the subject of the present study. [from the Introduction]
