Synopsis: Brent MacLaine's elegant, capacious, and finely crafted fourth collection, Athena Becomes a Swallow, contains twenty-seven monologues spoken by characters that appear in Homer's The Odyssey. These are not the voices of the major players, but the voices of the minor characters who received scant attention in the original. Here they are allowed to have their say about the events that swirl around them, providing a new persepctive and showing how the shine of the gods also falls on the common folk.

From the Inside Flap:

Brent MacLaine's elegant, capacious, and finely crafted collection, Athena Becomes a Swallow, contains twenty-seven monologues spoken by characters who appear in Homer's The Odyssey. Adopting the voices of the minor characters, MacLaine offers a novel perspective on the epic events, demonstrating how the shine of the gods falls on the common folk as well.

In this energetic, rhythmic collection, MacLaine creates a world as real and immediate to us today as it may have been 3,000 years ago.
