'Homer's Daughter' is a 1955 novel by Robert Graves, famous for I, Claudius and The White Goddess.

It starts from the idea that Homer's Odyssey was actually written by a princess in the Greek settlements in Sicily. The novel makes an entirely speculative reconstruction of who she was and why she wrote such a work. It has her modifying the legends that existed in her own time to partly match a crisis in her own life.

It is one of Graves's less popular novels, but is in print and does have some admirers.[1] [2] [3]
