How does writing impace our stories, myths and legends?

Literary critic and philosopher Martin Puchner delves into our basic human need to create stories, how these sagas and fictions have created the world we live in today, and the role of writing in containing them.

Martin Puchner holds the Byron and Anita Wien Chair in Drama, English and Comparative Literature at Harvard University. He has published over a dozen books, collections, and anthologies, and is the general editor of the six volume Norton Anthology of World Literature, used by students worldwide. He has written for the London Review of Books, Raritan Review, Bookforum and N+1.
