The myth of Odysseus and his long voyage home to Ithaca has been a source of inspiration to great writers for almost three thousand years. In this poetry reading we shall revisit his main ports of call, retracing the familiar journey in the company of poets ranging from George Chapman to Carol Ann Duffy, as they retell, reimagine and reinvent Homer’s immortal tale, asking us to consider the ancient characters and situations in new ways. Their poems will be read over lunchtime by a half-dozen members of the University, young and not-so-young, in the evocative cast gallery at the heart of the Classics Faculty.
