Shiretown Bookers Spring exhibition, ?To Sail Beyond the Sunset: the Influence of the Odyssey?
Mantor Library
June 15-June 15, 2017 MORE
Cost: FREE
Audience: Open to the public

The Shiretown Bookers are proud to announce their Spring exhibition, ?To Sail Beyond the Sunset: the Influence of the Odyssey?, running from March 15th through June 15th, in the Bookers? gallery area in Mantor Library at 116 South Street in Farmington. The Odyssey of Homer, taken together with the Iliad, constitutes the oldest surviving work of Western Literature. The story of Odysseus? homeward wanderings has stirred the adventurous imagination for nearly 3000 years and has served as inspiration for many of our great poems, tales, novels, and movies. Ulysses, by James Joyce, which follows the plot of the Odyssey through a day in Dublin in 1904, is widely acclaimed as the greatest novel of the twentieth century. Odysseus has wandered into other works as well. He appears in Dante, in Shakespeare, in Katzanzakis, in Robert Graves and Zachery Mason, and in the post-modern works of John Barth. Penelope has figured in a literature of her own, inspiring strong feminist work by Atwood, Leclerc, and La Spina. The Shiretown Bookers (The Community Friends of Mantor Library) are a group of book lovers and collectors who support the university library by fostering its relationship with the community. The group provides free exhibitions and lectures on bookish subjects throughout the year.
