The Muse Learns to Write
Reflections on Orality and Literacy From Antiquity to the PresentBook - 1986
From publisher's description: "When oral culture becomes literate, in what way does human consciousness itself change? And how does the new form of communication affect the content and meaning of texts? In this book, one of the most original and penetrating thinkers in Greek studies describes the transformation from orality to literacy in classical times and reflects upon its continued meaning for us today."
