Noor’s Play Aède of the Ocean and Land Now Available

A previously unpublished play by Noor, Aède of the Ocean and Land, has been published by Suluk Press. The play is a mystical retelling of Homer’s Odyssey, which combines aspects of her personal experience and Sufi esotericism with the Greek epic. Contemporary Odyssey translator Emily Wilson described Aède as a “mystical dramatization of the Odyssey, in the tradition of ancient Neoplatonic readings of Homer” and “an important text for readers interested in the reception of Homer in the twentieth century.” With its themes of wandering and homecoming, it’s a surprising – and poignant – story with universal significance.
