C.S. Lewis' and allusion to Dante & Homer

A very good article on Lewis' intertextual reference and commentary on Odysseus generally, and Dante's Ulysses specifically.

Also note the playful Dante reference in Lewis' "The Great Divorce." Compare the angel who drives the bus with the angel who comes to open the gates of Dis for Dante and Virgil.
