From the Convenor's Desk

Odyssey 2021, a peregrination into the lives of Victorian Literary artists beckons you once again to unfold, unearth and appreciate the best in Victorian Literature. The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having a new vision. Great works of literature do not simply describe an object. Its beauty rests in the fact that it enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides. Literature is a form of time travel that helps put today in context. The study of literature widens our horizons, expands the spectrum of human experiences and refines our critical and analytical ability. Odyssey 2021 will give an insight into what is best in Victorian Literature...
