A WAY WITH WORDS II Approaches to Literature

by | Read by Michael D.C. Drout

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2007

In a follow-up to his earlier lecture series, A WAY WITH WORDS: WRITING, RHETORIC, AND THE ART OF PERSUASION, Professor Drout examines why and how we use literature. In his youthful, rapid-fire speaking style, Drout examines the nature of prose and poetry, and the relationships between author, reader, and text, as well as the psychology and politics of literature. Aside from occasionally stopping and restarting sentences, and infrequent lapses into silliness, Drout uses his enthusiasm to provide an engaging and fascinating look at what might otherwise be a dreary subject.
