Exhibit: To Sail Beyond the Sunset: The Influence of the Odyssey - UMF Mantor Library

116 South Street
Farmington, Maine 04938
Phone: (207) 778-7210

          

Mar 15 thru Jun 15, 2017. The Shiretown Bookers are proud to announce their Spring exhibition, "To Sail Beyond the Sunset: The Influence of the Odyssey," on display at the Bookers' gallery area in UMF's 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's 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 exhibit is on display from Mar. 15 through June 15.

Gass will present her book, Voting Down the Rose, a lively account of Maine native, Florence Brooks Whitehouse, who campaigned for the right of women to vote.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Copies of Voting Down the Rose will be available for sale and signing courtesy of the author.
