A further volume in the fine OUP 'Classical Presences' series, McConnell's book deals with the work of creative artists of ultimately African descent who respond each in their own way to the Homeric Odyssey. McConnell focusses above all on issues of identity and homecoming, the search by people of the African diaspora for a place within the postcolonial world.
