Question and answer
Q: Which of the following statements is FALSE? A. Homer s epic poems followed a rhythm and meter called dactylic hexameter. B. All epic poems are long poems telling the heroic adventures of individuals
in a way that identifies the central beliefs and cultures of a society. C. Epic poems such as Paradise Lost and Beowulf open with an invocation to the Greek muse Calliope. D. All epic poems feature a hero who must face many trials and confront danger.
A: A. [ Homer s epic poems followed a rhythm and meter called dactylic hexameter It is probable that Homer's name was applied to two distinct individuals differing in temperament and artistic accomplishment, born perhaps as much as a century apart, but practicing the same traditional craft of oral composition and recitation. Although each became known as "Homer, " it may be (as one ancient source
asserts) that homros was a dialectical lonic word for a blind man and so came to be used generically of the old and often sightless wandering reciters of heroic legends in the traditional meter of unrhymed dactylic hexameters. ]
