ChatChat - Claudia Cragg

Feb 19, 2018

Claudia Cragg (@KGNU @KGNUClaudia) speaks here with Harvard Professor Martin Puchner (@martin_puchner) on his latest book, The Written World. This is the story of how literature has shaped world history in sixteen acts, from Alexander The Great and the Iliad to Do Quixote and Harry Potter.

As Puchner has been extensively interviewed, and as Puchner is himself a 'modernist' by persuasion, this interview starts very late in the 4,000 year old catalogue that the book represents.
