You're likely to list the invention of paper, the printing press and the world wide web as major influences on the way we share stories. You probably wouldn't include Malian singers, American astronauts, Greek generals, Japanese courtiers, and Spanish adventurers. And yet all of them played a crucial role in shaping and spreading literature as we know it today. 'The Written World' tells the riveting story of the development of literature, where stories intersect with writing technologies like clay, stone, parchment, paper, printing presses, and computers.
