Outside the Book: Track 1

Featuring: Video Video

What function does comedy serve? What do people in power learn by watching tragedies? In this collection of five animations comedienne Josie Long guides us into the fascinating world of Literary Theory. Along the way we’ll discover two very different types of poet (and lover): The Petrarchan and The Libertine, we’re given insight into the complexity behind the term author and learn the difference between a book and the idea of a book. This collection was created in conjunction with The Open University course A334 English Literature from Shakespeare to Austen
