Unsung Odysseys retells the story of Homer’s Odyssey through the voices of women caught up in Odysseus’ ten-year journey home from Troy. Each female speaks directly to the reader in her own voice, describing her encounter with and feelings toward Odysseus. Hear the voice of the distraught mother; the patient wife; the loyal nurse; the love-struck princess; the benevolent witch; the possessive nymph; and the guide and mentor, the goddess Athena. The narrative unfolds with each character picking up the thread where the previous character left off. The voices are unique and offer a timeless and relevant reaction to the events.
