Righting Rewritings of the Myth of Mentor: A Critical Perspective on Career Guidance Mentoring.
Colley, Helen
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v29 n2 p177-97 May 2001
Explores the use of Homer's "Odyssey" as a source of definitions and legitimations of many current accounts of mentoring. Identifies an emerging discourse of mentoring which exerts control not only over the young people being mentored, but also over career guidance staff expected to act as mentors in new Personal Adviser roles.
