    Puchner_Book.jpgStories and literature are more than "entertainment"—they shape our world. They have inspired the rise and fall of empires and nations, sparked our understandings of the world through basic political and philosophical concepts, and have given birth to religious beliefs. Stories and literature touch the lives of generations and change the course of history.

    Harvard Professor Martin Puchner's about to be published new book The Written World: The Power of Stories to Shape People, History, Civilization examines the tangible importance of works from Gilgamesh to Harry Potter, exploring the impact of The Tale of Genji, the Thousand and One Nights, The Communist Manifesto, and more.

    fac_puchner.jpgMartin Puchner is the Chair of Harvard's new program in Theater, Dance, and Media, and is the Byron and Anita Wien Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Harvard. His prizewinning books have ranged from philosophy to theater to literature and the arts. He is the General Editor of the 6-volume Norton Anthology of World Literature. Professor Puchner also teaches a Harvard X online course with students around the Globe.
