Fifteen women artists, all members of a long-running book group, were inspired to create art in response to Emily Wilson’s remarkable new translation of The Odyssey; the first English translation by a woman. The artists explore in different styles and media the characters and topics covered in Homer’s ancient poem: the meaning of home; the near impossibility of returning home; loyalty; families; migrants; war; poverty; identity; transformation.
