What is the public value of literary studies? What is the justification for literature at the present time? Literature and the Public Good looks at literature's value and its public presence, and its contribution to the public good. The book's author, Professor Rick Rylance (School of Advanced Study) will explore the issues raised with Jane Hiddleston (Professor of Literatures in French, University of Oxford), Timothy Michael (Tutorial Fellow in English Literature, University of Oxford), Ankhi Mukherjee (Professor of English and World Literatures, University of Oxford), and Helen Small (Professor of English Literature, University of Oxford).
