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 Western imperialism, and how it has inspired anti-colonial poets novelists, playwrights, and directors, McConnell examines 20th and 21st century works from Africa and the African diaspora including the Caribbean and the United States
