Journey to Ithaca: A Picture Gallery for a Law School Classroom

Journey to Ithaca #1 When you set out on your journey to Ithaca, pray that the road is long....That the summer mornings are many... Constantine Cavafy (1911).

Note: When classes begin at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville, Dean James M. Chen introduces students to Ithaka, the celebrated poem by Constantine P. Cavafy.

The proposed picture gallery for a law school classroom uses pictures of Louisville, the launching point for the Lewis and Clark Expedition and the George Rogers Clark cabin to illustate notable lines from the poem. Eleven more images follow. The exhibition, however, will use only nine.
