The group of poems known as Homerica survives as incomplete and fragmented verses. The name "Homerica" has been adapted to distinguish this group of poems from those of the Epic Cycle, the Homeric Hymns, and the works attributed to Hesiod. The poems of Homerica were written by unknown authors, and embrace a variety of subjects. The Battle of Frogs and Mice is a delightful parody of the Iliad. The Contest of Homer and Hesiod, although obviously fictitious, is a masterpiece of poetic banter. The other poems of Homerica survive only as fragments.
