This diverse, vibrant book is modeled on Homer's ancient epic, using it as an allegorical scaffolding for the poet’s own experience as a Black man in contemporary America. As Homer led Odysseus through mythical challenges, SETH leads the reader through human trials—poverty, desire, injustice, racism, as he wrestles with what it means to be alive in these times.
