Penelope’s Odyssey

Sue Goyette

Penelope waits twenty years for the return of her husband, but we know very little about the two decades of Penelope’s patience from Homer’s epic poem. Thankfully, in 2017, the Muses sang through acclaimed Canadian poet and novelist Sue Goyette the story of Penelope’s waiting, and these poems are now published in a glorious collection from Gaspereau Press. In the midst of our examination of the Odyssey, Sue Goyette will share what moved her to write Penelope and then read some poems from her collection.
