| Book Description: |
This book explores works from Africa and the African diaspora which respond to the Homeric Odyssey. As a founding text of the Western canon, and as a homecoming trope and quest for identity, the Odyssey has inspired writers who are simultaneously striving against and appropriating the very forms which had been used to oppress them.
