ONCE UPON A PRIME The Wondrous Connections Between Mathematics and Literature

by | Read by Sarah Hart

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Listeners, however well versed in literature and mathematics, or not, will relish author/narrator Sarah Hart's spirited tour of the long and intimate relationship between the two. Some may find the finer points of her readings of classics like MOBY-DICK and MIDDLEMARCH a bit daunting. But it hardly matters when the narrative is so informed and insightful and the narrator so infused with energy and enthusiasm. Hart holds Britain's oldest public lectureship, and she is especially skilled in summarizing storylines and abstract concepts so that the listener always has a general idea where she's going. Her reading of GULLIVER'S TRAVELS according to the laws of mass and gravity is a classic. Many of her concepts are more easily understood with graphics; following along with the pdf is recommended.
