Jean Dorat (1508-1588), the guide and mentor of several poets of the Pléiade, gave a series of lectures on books 10-12 of the Odyssey which were partially preserved in lecture notes taken by a student. Theses notes, now housed in the Ambrosian Library in Milan, provide a useful insight into his teaching methods. His discussion of the text is largely aimed at providing an allegorical interpretation of Homer, strongly grounded on principles of etymology which owe much to Cratylism.
