Author, Tamara Agha-Jaffar, breathes new life to these minimized characters, deciding that their time has finally come. Her reinterpretation unfolds through their alternating narratives of the patient wife and queen, a grieving mother, the benevolent witch, a love-struck princess, and the manipulative demigoddess, Calypso. Even his mentor-Goddess Athena has a voice and a role in the arc of this revised story. Their voices weave together seamlessly, into the inevitable and "often sung" conclusion of Odysseys' return to Ithaca to reclaim his kingdom, his home, and his wife. This counterpoint, the book "Unsung Odysseys" is the elegant and entertaining story of how the heart of a legendary hero, must first open and blossom in order for him to become a true king.
I highly recommend this work to anyone interested in historical fiction, Greek mythology, or the classics.
