Note Relating to
Cather: In "Flavia and Her Artists," Miss Broadwood accosts Imogen with the words "and you've brought Ulysses home again and the slaughter has begun." In One of Ours, to Claude, "the story of 'Paradise Lost' was as mythical as the 'Odyssey,'" and "Like the hero of the Odyssey upon his homeward journey, Claude had often to tell what his country was, and who were the parents that begot him."
In Death Comes for the Archbishop Prologue, Father Ferrand is said to be the "Odysseus of the Church."
