How did Homer write? I want to know how these oral traditions were composed. There's no way they just orally spoke it and memorised it. These are entire books

What's the best book on life in England during the 18th century? I would like to read musings on the empire, observations about society and generally the daily life of men. It would be nice if it was written by someone who is philosophical and highly literate.

Thank you.

Can someone explain why Shakespeare is held in such high regards? I'm not looking for a paragraph of compliments without context. I want to know why people think he is emotionally intelligent. He is neither philosophical nor deep. What is the appeal?
