Summary
"This book explores the themes of exile and wandering, homecoming and fated closures in literature--but also in real life and history--by invoking Homer's Odyssey. Focusing on crucial moments in the lives and careers of three scholar/writers--Erich Auerbach, François Fénelon, and W.G. Sebald--all of whom were inspired by Homer's epic, Three Rings uses "ring composition" (Homer's dominant narrative technique) to tell the stories of the three writers' lives"--
