I can't seem to understand what this question is asking, but I have tried to answer it. Can someone check it please? :)

Why were the epics of importance to the Greeks of the Dorian period?

Answer:

The Dorians were far less advanced than the Mycenaeans. The economy

collapsed and trade eventually came to a standstill soon after their arrival. Most

important to historians, Greeks appear to have temporarily lost the art of writing

during the Dorian Age.

Yes. I know. It doesn't make sense to me either. Dx Thanks for trying though. :)

IF they had lost the art of writing, the epics would have been highly valued, both as artifacts from a "better time" and as an example of how to write.
