: Athena Becomes a Swallow and Other Voices from The Odyssey (): Brent MacLaine: Books. Athena Becomes a Swallow, Brent MacLaine's fourth book of poetry, is a classic in terms of psychological depth, creativity, style, angle, and theme.

Through a series of 27 original monologues, soliloquies, and diary entries in the voices of peripheral characters from Homer's Odyssey, MacLaine manages to get a new, more relevant handle on epic.

Brent MacLaine's elegant, capacious, and finely crafted fourth collection, Athena Becomes a Swallow, contains twenty-seven monologues spoken by characters that appear in Homer's The are not the voices of the major players, but the voices of the minor characters who received scant attention in the original.

Formal and elegant, Prometheus plots a trajectory between the classical and the local, a bearing that will be familiar to readers of MacLaine’s earlier work Athena Becomes a Swallow. Wide-ranging in its geography, the new book is wrapped ’round.
