DEREK WALCOTI'S OMEROS AND THE CLASSICS

Richard Whitaker

Abstract


The Greek classics served the Italian, French, and English humanists without
the troublesome interposition of actual Greeks. Texts by dead people were
read, appreciat~, and appropriated by people who imagined an ideal
commonwealth ... In modem times, however, thinking about cultural
exchange involves thinking about domination and forcible appropriation:
someone loses, someone gains. (Edward Said 1994:235)
