Descriere:

"An enjoyable account of a lifelong involvement with literature."- John Vukmirovich, Times Literary Supplement.

This "little history" takes on a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from The Epic of Gilgamesh to Harry Potter. Beloved author, John Sutherland, who has researched, taught, and written on virtually every area of literature, guides both young readers and the adults in their lives on an entertaining journey "through the wardrobe" to show how literature from across the world can transport us and help us to make sense of what it means to be human.

Along the way he introduces us to a wide range of works, enlivening his offerings with humor as well as learning - from Beowulf and Shakespeare to T.S. Eliot and George Orwell, and from the rude jests of Anglo-Saxon runes to The Da Vinci Code. For younger readers, Sutherland offers a proper introduction to literature, promising to interest as much as instruct.
