This podcast is an introduction to Anglophone literature, from ancient times to the present, done by a Ph.D. with lots of books and musical instruments. A typical episode offers a summary of a work, or part of a work of literature, followed by some historical analysis. The episodes include original music, some comedy songs, and goofy jokes. You can listen to the shows in any order, although from time to time, episodes will make brief mention of previous or upcoming ones.
 
Barely Bookish is a podcast about all classic literature and modern literature alike. These are books that you've likely been told you should've read by now or that you may have read in school. Rachel, along with a guest, reads a new-to-her book while discussing the plot, movies, retellings, and so much more. If you're a literature nerd or if you just enjoy a bookish podcast, welcome! If you're using this instead of reading the books, I get it and I don't judge.

Why do great novels, poems and plays move us and excite us? How can they change the way we look at ourselves and the world? What do these authors have to teach us? Why do they matter? There are no better answers to these questions than those provided by the authors themselves. We want to let them speak. Professing Literature is not a broad summary of major works. Instead, it will zero in on one or two key passages, looking at them closely in order to figure out what is at stake. The goal wil ...

Humans have shared stories for millennia. For most of that time, telling tales was a verbal process. A storyteller would regale an audience with accounts of adventure, bravery, compassion, despair, enlightenment, and fear. Stories were a shared experience, until the advent of inexpensive mass-printing processes in the 19th century which allowed most of us to read to ourselves. Yet, that desire to have a story read aloud is still ingrained in our collective soul. While we still read books for ...

Our first bonus episode! I know it seems early, but I thought it important to put this out there as soon as possible: sort of justify the podcast's existence. . . . Students often ask me: "Why do we have to learn this stuff?" It's a fair question. To many, it seems useless: reading novels and poetry won't help you be a better engineer or physician'…

David, Eric, and Nick seek out some mid-summer spookiness in Shirley Jackson’s acclaimed We Have Always Lived in the Castle and instead find a compact work that is much more complicated than the horror themes, accessible sentences, and vaguely young adult-ish book cover (thanks Penguin Classics) lead one to believe. Cheers to Jackson for walking th…
 
Here is a story for those times when you only have a few minutes for a story.

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, Chapter 5, Read by Isaac Birchall.

While reading Thomas Jefferson's collected writings, I realized that, until the very end of his life, his mental acuity never suffered. The same brilliance with which he dazzled the Continental Congress in 1776 sustained itself (and perhaps grew even brighter) until the first quarter of the next century when, on the Fourth of July in 1826, he died.…

We take on one of the most controversial novels ever put to print this month, Nabokov's "Lolita."

We've witnessed two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth--a trend to which most honest economists once affixed the word, "recession". But honesty, it seems, no longer has currency, so long as a certain Party is in charge. And the army achieves only 40% of its recruitment goal. Why did this happen, and what does it portend?…
