Details

Oliver Tearle traces the history of Western civilization through its books, beginning in ancient Greece with Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, but also the Batrachomyomachia attributed to him by Aristotle. Throughout this ‘secret library’ of history, Tearle looks for the obscure and even imaginary books which, like Homer's Battle of Frogs and Mice, existed alongside revered classics and can shed new light on ages past.
