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.

The question doesn't make sense to me.

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.
