The most influential type of criticism of Homeric poetry in the twentieth century, the oral-formulaic approach of Milman Parry and Albert Lord, holds that text, the medium opposite to speech, is absent in the composition of the epic tale.

Milman Parry concentrated on the Homeric “stock-epithets” and formulaic structure to establish it as an oral composition. He argued that epithets changed not according to the immediate needs of the narrative, but rather for exclusively metrical reasons.

Poetry (derived from the Greek poiesis, "making") is a form of literature that uses aesthetic and often rhythmic qualities of language—such as phonaesthetics, sound symbolism, and metre—to evoke meanings in addition to, or in place of, the prosaic ostensible meaning.

Poetry has a long history – dating back to prehistoric times with hunting poetry in Africa, and to panegyric and elegiac. As a literary device, an allegory is a narrative in which a character, place, or event is used to deliver a broader message about real-world issues and occurrences.

Authors have used allegory throughout history in all forms of art to illustrate or convey complex ideas and concepts in ways that are comprehensible or striking to its viewers, readers, or listeners.

A metrical system is the particular rhythm upon which a verse is structured. Classical Ancient Greek poetry demonstrates a wide variety of metrical systems, the most ancient one being the hexameter.

Two of the longest and most famous poems of Ancient Greek poetry, namely Iliad and Odyssey, were composed in the hexameter by Homer. The "Homeric Question" has vexed Classicists for generations.

Prosody. Greek poetry is based on syllable length, not on syllable stress, as in two syllable lengths in Greek poetry are long and is probable that in the natural spoken language there were also syllables of intermediate length, as in the first syllable of words such as τέκνα /tékna/ 'children', where a short vowel is followed by a plosive + liquid combination; but.

The differences are worth some notice. Printed editions of Shakespeare distinguish between speakers, as is common in printed drama. In Homer a speech never begins in the middle of a line, and every speech is formally introduced and terminated.
