Summary
"Black Odysseys explores creative works by artists of ultimately African descent which respond to the Homeric Odyssey. Considering what the ancient Greek epic has signified for those struggling to emerge from the shadow of European imperialism, and how it has inspired anticolonial poets, novelists, playwrights, and directors, Justine McConnell examines twentieth- and twenty-first century works from Africa and the African diaspora."--Book jacket.
