I am learning about Homer in Social Studies. I have always wanted to read one of his poems. I have just gotten done with reading some of these comments and rateing them. Now I really, really want to read one of his poems. I have been learning about Greece and Homer for a while and now I am learning about poems in Language Arts. I really wanted to know why he was killed. I know he was killed because he questioned Athenian values, such as religion. But why can't a man have his oun thoughts? To those you have read one of his poems, good for you!
