A Personal Reading of Homer's Odyssey
It is amazing how much insight the Odyssey, one of the oldest books in Western
literature, can give us into something as apparently modern as ‘mentoring’. To show
how instructive it can be to revisit the classics from time to time, I gladly share my
own reading of Homer's Odyssey, an epic tale that was probably written in the
8th century BC and deals with events which are thought to have taken place in the
12th century BC.
