    Excerpt from The Return of Odysseus: A Greek Choric Play in Two Continuous Acts Separated by an Interlude of Visions

    In one lyric a modern invention (unless we recog nize as its prototype the artificial wings of Daedalus), the aeroplane, is mentioned as a symbol of man's domination of the air, which was deemed in ancient times no less than in the present day a human right and ultimate achievement.

    In short, the essential purpose of the return OF odysseus has been to portray those phases of ancient life and thought and spirit which are also modern, doing so without regard to any special classic era, and employing any means of representation which universally obtains in order that these subjects may be comprehended by the modern non-scholastic mind.

    Because of dramatic requirements certain liberties have been taken with the classic story which forms the plot of the play. For example, the slaughter of the suitors takes place in the Banquet Hall, and this did not permit of the preceding open-air scene de scribed by Homer, where Odysseus wins the contest in archery.

    Wherever practicable, however, the narrative of Homer has been faithfully followed. To this end, with a few adaptations necessary to make artistic compositions, the descriptions of the visions of Penelope (the various adventures of Odysseus on his way home from Troy) are given in the words of the Odyssey as rendered in that best of all English translations, the version of Butcher and Lang, which, being in Biblical prose, imparts to the English ear that effect of sacred associations which the original possessed for the Homer-reverencing Greek.
