This course surveys world literature from The Epic of Gilgamesh to the present, with an emphasis on different cultures and writing traditions.
Produced by HarvardX, the course is based not on lectures but on a more vivid dialogue format between instructors Martin Puchner and David Damrosch. The course also includes travel footage from Istanbul and Troy to Jaipur and Weimar, and interviews with authors, such as Orhan Pamuk, and other experts.
