    Who is Homer?

    I know there are several theories relating to Homer's identity e.g. he was an army medic or a poet living several lifetimes before Herodotus'. There's also the theory though that "Homer" is not a person, but a collection of people who wrote down the Iliad and Odyssey from its oral tradition for hundreds of years. What is/are the current theory/theories on Homer's identity?
