Re-discovering Age(ing)

Narratives of Mentorship

Since Mentor, Telemachus' advisor in Homer's Odyssey, gave name to the figure of the ›wise teacher,‹ fictional representations of mentoring have permeated classic and contemporary cultural texts of different literary genres such as fiction, poetry, and life writing. The contributions of this volume explore wisdom in old age through a series of narratives of mentorship which, either from a critical or a personal perspective, undermine ageist views of later life.
