Therefore the blindness of Omeros is not treated as a defect in the poem, rather it grants him divine prowess, as the poet says ‘Since the disease had obliterated vision’ he ‘moved by a sixth sense’ as ‘blindness was not the end’ The narrator gives Omeros godly reverance and invokes in the very commencement of the poem, ‘O open this day with the conch’s moan, Omeros, / as you did in…
my childhood, when I was a noun/ gently exhaled from the palate of the sunrise’. Some of the critics are also of the view that Omeros is the god himself because the narrator says that he has ‘always heard/ your voice in that sea’ and ‘your name was as wide as a bay’ But some other critics renounce the claim by arguing that as Omeros is the second name of Homer so he is not any divine figure but just a poet who has inspired the narrator, as the narrator rejoices at the fact that ‘I was the freshest of all your readers’.
